Atlanta Research Center Opens

By Crystal Conde Premium


If your genealogical research takes you to Atlanta or other parts of the South, consider a visit to a new, free research center at the Atlanta History Center. The 42,000-square-foot James C. Kenan Research Center houses more than 3.5 million items from the Atlanta Historical Society’s archives.

The center’s visual collection boasts 1.5 million historical photographs, prints, maps and architectural drawings. Its manuscript collections encompass business records, private papers, documents, newspapers and microfilm. You’ll find information about a variety of topics — decorative arts, genealogy, military history, Southern gardens and architectural history. Access the research center’s collections on the Web by visiting <www.atlantahistorycenter.com>.
