Tennessee Archivists to hold Annual Conference in Clarksville


Nashville, TN – The Society of Tennessee Archivists will hold its annual conference October 16th-18th, 2013, at the Riverview Inn Conference Center in Clarksville, Tennessee.  This year’s theme:  STA2013: Listen Up! Discovering, Sharing, and Preserving Our Stories” will focus on oral history and folklife projects in the Southeastern United States.

“Oral histories are the purest form of history. They are a first-person account of events and must be preserved for future generations,” said Ralph Sowell, Vice President of the Society.  “Archivists provide future generations with an accurate study of the past, learning from the accomplishments of predecessors, tracing genealogical ancestry and maintain records in the public  trust.  State, County, and Private Archives help to improve citizen knowledge of their community histories.”
