digitalarchivesFive years ago, the Washington State Digital Archives opened a brand-new building on the Eastern Washington University campus in Cheney. Since then, it has established itself as the leader among all states in the electronic preservation of documents. And it’s a hit with genealogy buffs.

Digital Archives is celebrating its fifth anniversary today in the facility that it shares with the Eastern Washington Regional Archives. Secretary of State Sam Reed and a few other key people from our office are attending the event.   

Digital Archives collects, indexes and stores over 84 million electronic records created by state and local government agencies. Of that enormous total, more than 67,000 have been made available to the public.
