Donate Collections

Thank you for your interest in donating historic materials to the Alabama Department of Archives and History. We welcome materials that reflect the experiences of Alabamians from all parts of the state, all walks of life, and all time periods.

Our understanding of the past continues to improve as we acquire additional records and artifacts, most often through generous contributions made by our citizens.

To offer items for donation, please submit a donation form. If you have questions about the donation process, please review the donation FAQs or contact the Registrar’s office by phone at (334) 353-4748 or email at
