Nerd Quest

Today The NSArchaeology society gathered a group of members to tour the provincial archives.  I was beyond excited.  I fondly remember spending hours going through rolls of microfiche researching my ancestors.  So much fun! That building is jammed packed with historical items.  Vaults of treasures. The Archivists preserve the past events of the province.  Trying to preserve the present for future generations.  I’ve always been aware of the historical importance, I never realized the importance of present day collection of important information.
