WASHINGTON – In an effort to minimize the effect of the COVID-19 Virus, the Southwest Arkansas Regional Archives in Washington, along with the Arkansas State Archives and Northeast Arkansas Regional Archives, will be closed to the public beginning Saturday, March 21. The online reference services are still available and will be monitored by staff.

The May Spring Genealogy Workshop at Washington has been canceled. Melissa Nesbitt, Archival Manager of the Southwest Arkansas Regional Archives said, “Due to the safety precautions Arkansas State Parks and Arkansas State Archives are taking amid concerns of COVID-19, we must cancel the Tracing Your Arkansas Roots event for May 2nd. Thank you all who were willing and prepared to be speakers. We hope we might be able to reschedule at a later time.”
