The City Archives are going on the road! Well sort of.
Two of the City of Portland’s archivists visited the North Portland Branch of the Multnomah County Library in January and will be heading out again to four different library branches through the end of 2018. We can’t bring the whole archives with us, but we are bringing copies of neighborhood photos, guides on how to do research in the archives including how to search our online database Efiles and our expertise on searching City records.
Bring your questions about archives, City records, or Portland history and we will show you how to do your own research. We’ll talk about the types of historical records in the City Archives and how to get access to them. Even if you don’t have a specific question, bring your curiosity!
