We Seek the Threads that Connect the Past & Present to Inspire Others in Their Quests..
This is WHY we do what we do…
This is a cause, our belief, our mission
People travel great distances, make great sacrifices, and spend vast amounts of time and money searching for the answers to their questions. People from all over the world visit, call, or write to the Archive with questions about their relatives who lived in Stark County, to find a business that was once here, or to view the vast photograph collection. Everyone has a story, everyone has a question. We can help you…
