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 Hennef City Archive is included!
The city archive is the central documentation center for the history of the city of Hennef. It is the "memory of the administration", as it is here that the historical records of the formerly independent municipalities of Hennef, Lauthausen and Uckerath and the written material that has become dispensable in the administration are recorded, organized, indexed and stored.
An important concern of the municipal archives is the expansion of the collection holdings. These supplement the municipal records and provide information about life in a town or municipality. These include, for example, photos, posters, commemorative publications, video films, DVDs, but also bequests from private individuals or companies.
In addition to the already mentioned files, you will find the following interesting documents on Hennef's history:
Citizens visiting the city archives will be gladly advised on questions of genealogy or local history. Associations and other institutions are supported with exhibitions and commemorative publications.
The city archive is constantly striving to expand its collections.
Therefore, we would like to ask all interested citizens who have historical documents, photos, commemorative publications, etc.: please contact the town archive!
