OHRAB Achievement Award Presented to Franklin County Children Services

Congratulations to Franklin County Children Services for receiving the 2017 OHRAB Achievement Award!  Franklin County Children Services was recognized for its project inventorying and cataloging a large volume of historical records documenting the history of the agency.  This included board meeting minutes, photographs, newspaper clippings, brochures and other documents.  Following this project these records are now preserved and more accessible.

OHRAB Endorses “Value of History” Statement!

The Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board has endorsed the History Relevance Campaign’s “Value of History” statement.  Going against the perception that “history is nice, but not essential”, this statement shares the ways that history is crucial for ourselves, our communities and our future.  More information about the History Relevance Campaign is available at https://www.historyrelevance.com/.
