About

Kari Roueche, blogger and unemployed archivist

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

I am an indexer for FamilySearch, a photo contributor for FindAGrave, a digital transcriber for the Smithsonian Institution, and a member of the Society of Tennessee Archivists.

I am NOT an employee of the Archives of the City of Kingsport but, as a volunteer and a former intern, I try to promote awareness of the archives and to encourage patrons to donate their collections to 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.

Practicum Categories:
Conservation, Reference, and Collections Processing. During the last three weeks I processed the The Hugh B. Brown Family Papers.
