Archives introduce themselves - Stadtarchiv Bad Berleburg

By Archivportal-D

In the section "Archives introduce themselves" we present the various data providers of the Archivportal-D and link to their holdings. We are pleased that the Stadtarchiv Bad Berleburg is participating.

On the one hand, the town archive of Bad Berleburg documents administrative actions and keeps the records of the historical town of Berleburg, the offices of Arfeld, Berghausen, Girkhausen and Berleburg available for use. On the other hand, the history of the town is made accessible in collections from associations, institutions, estates, publications and pictures.
