Video: Inside The Vaults of the Delaware Public Archives
The Delaware Public Archives building is nestled among museums, courthouses, and government buildings. Step inside and you’ll find a beautiful research library, just waiting for you to research anything from the history of one of Delaware’s towns, or your families’ genealogy. Three out of every four people that visit the library are doing genealogy work.
The mission of the public archives is to preserve and conserve all the records contained in its three massive vaults. The folks that work there take the job very seriously.
“We’re charged with actually protecting those documents until they are needed by a state official or a citizen,” said Thomas Summers, the manager of outreach services for the Archives.
