State Archives

Since 1875 we have preserved the rich heritage of Kansas--its people and their stories. We invite you to take advantage of our resources, whether you're a researcher, teacher, student, genealogist, or someone interested in Kansas history.

From letters written by well-known figures such as John Brown or Carry Nation to records that bring your family's legacy or house history to light, we have the most comprehensive collection of historical documents in the state.

Visitor comments

The staff was so helpful, polite, and knowledgeable. Your newspaper collection is great. I was able to find obituaries for many ancestors from 1880s - 1970s. All genealogists with an interest in Kansas need to visit your library. Thank you!?A researcher
