(US-WA)  National Archives In Seattle, WA (IAJGS Public Records Access Alert) – June 12, 2021

I saw this recently on IAJGS(US-WA)  National Archives In Seattle, WA (IAJGS Public Records Access Alert): https://aotus.blogs.archives.gov/2021/06/11/the-importance-of-acknowledging-our-history-the-national-archives-in-seattle/. Much longer article, but here are some of the relevant portions.

The IAJGS Records Access Alert previously wrote about the potential of the Seattle Archives being transferred to California and Kansas City, at least a thousand of miles away from the residents whose records are located there: Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. This closure/relocation was stopped by the Biden Administration—at least for now.

This post is part of an ongoing series of blog posts that acknowledges the ancestral lands on which the National Archives’ buildings are situated. I share these land acknowledgements as a way to offer recognition and respect to the people who lived on these lands before us. Today’s post takes us to the National Archives and Records Administration’s facility in Seattle, Washington.
