City Archives Digital Access Initiative
The records of our City belong to the people of our City. Since 1989, the City Archives has worked to enable Bostonians to easily access the records that affect their daily lives and preserve the memory of their diverse communities.
Providing digital access to our records opens our City’s rich historic record to researchers of all types.
