The National Archives at Atlanta is a center for the study of the history of the South, a diverse region rich with family tradition. Native Americans were living on the land when the first settlers arrived. African slaves were then brought over, and later came Irish, English, Italian, Russian, and Cuban immigrants. Their stories, told in the seemingly incongruous records of the federal government, provide evidence of the universal human drama that is American family life. Records in the National Archives tell the story of southern families and communities, technological advances that changed lives, and social and economic forces that shaped the makeup of our society. Meeting and conference space are available for family reunions and corporate retreats. Conduct your next event with the likes of Rosa Parks, Duke Ellington, and Elvis Presley!
