Join archivists, museum curators, librarians, and history professionals from all across the DFW area at the Patterson-Appleton Center in Denton, TX, on Saturday, November 2, 2019, from 1-5pm for the DFW Archives Bazaar. Professionals from institutions like UNT, SMU, UT-Dallas, Fort Worth Jewish Archives, Fort Worth and Dallas Public Library, Dallas Holocaust Museum and Human Rights Museum, Portal to Texas History, and the Denton County Office of Culture and History (just to name a few) are responsible for helping to preserve the history and culture of communities in North Texas. They will be on hand to share their knowledge and help preserve your history.
The event is free and open to everyone -- what a great way to experience Texas' diverse history! At the demo booths and interactive exhibit guests can learn how to preserve their family treasures, interview family members about their own history, digitize family memories, and much more.
At the "Ask an Archivist" Station, professional archivists will be available to answer your questions! Have a future archivist in the family? Students can learn about archival career options and get advice on schools, programs, and internships at the career booth.
In addition to the exhibitors and demos, there will be door prizes, trivia, and more.
Learn all about the history of North Texas and the people that help preserve it for the next generation!
