In 2019 Dundee City Archives will mark 50 years since the first Archivist was hired. That means its our 50th birthday! (Or is it our Golden Jubilee?) To celebrate we are putting together a display of documents in our searchroom. And we want to feature your favourites. It could be a photograph, maybe you really like a map, or is your favourite a school register? Whatever it is, we want to know!
We will also be sharing some of these favourites and the stories behind them on this very blog. So we need your help! If you have a favourite document that we hold – maybe you have had used it for research in our searchroom or maybe seen an article about it on this blog. Or maybe we shared a photograph of it on our twitter or maybe its a photograph on our flickr feed, or maybe even used a transcript of it from the FDCA website – tell us about it and why it means so much to you. Maybe it relates to where you grew up, or does it have a connection to a significant person or historic event? No matter what the reason we want to hear your story – what’s your favourite document in the archives?
You can tell us about your favourite document my emailing us.
