Updated: Jun 24

Documenting personal experiences from the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic


What will future generations know of Washington's experiences during the COVID-19 Pandemic? Nothing...Unless you help to document it!


Seeking Archive Materials from the COVID-19 Pandemic


The Washington Historical Society is creating an archive of local people's experiences during the current pandemic for future generations to better understand our lives today.


Many communities around the world are collecting submissions for local archives, as well as many museums, historical societies, and the Smithsonian.
