About

Kari Roueche, blogger and freelance project archivist

MA Liberal Studies/Archival Studies, East Tennessee State University
BA Art Education, Brigham Young University

I am a volunteer project archivist for the Washington County Archives (TN), a digital transcriber for the Smithsonian Institution, an indexer for FamilySearch, a photo contributor for FindAGrave, and a member of the Society of Tennessee Archivists.

I promote local and personal family history research and awareness of the archives.

This blog began on June 4, 2012 as a daily record of a 5-week practicum at the LDS Church History Library and Archives (CHL) in Salt Lake City, UT, June – July of 2012. My experience there included: Conservation, Reference, and Collections Processing. During the last three weeks I processed the The Hugh B. Brown Family Papers.
