Video Legacy Project

“Archives Alive! The Power of the Record”

“Archives Alive!  The Power of the Record” is the title of the video component, which has been produced and shows the numerous ways in which archives are used today, for everything from family genealogical research to underwater archaeology.  

The purpose of the video is to convey to viewers the excitement of discovery when researching and locating archival documents.

The video is comprised of seventeen individual scenes.  Additionally, the video expounds upon the need for the preservation of documents and the role that repositories have in protecting these documents. 

This video will be available at each of the three exhibit sites: Ulster County Clerk’s Office 2nd Floor Archival Gallery, Senate House State Historic Site and the Huguenot Historical Society.
