South Carolina Archives Month

October is the big month for celebrating old stuff in South Carolina. The governor signed a proclamation declaring October South Carolina Archives Month(I checked...there isn't anything about Argentina in the proclamation). In celebration, a beautiful poster was designed for institutions to display.

The best part is that the poster PDF is available for anyone to download from the SC Archives Month web site (click the post title). The site has a calendar of statewide events and a word find game in addition to the poster. Fill out the on-site form to submit information about an historical program you know is happening in South Carolina.

This is a great time to look again at the links to the right to see if there is a site you haven't been to before and check it out. That will give the host institution one more hit to report for their October statistics!

In celebration of Archives Month I am passing on to you a new link. West Virginia Archives and History Library-The Cultural Center has an online database for West Virginia vital statistics. It looks very comprehensive. There has not been a public announcement about it so you have a brand new toy. It is not a South Carolina site but I think someone will find it useful.

The link is under the South Carolina links.
