What's in Your Archive?

IMG_4073Why did this item go in your archive?

I kept this pair of pants from when my daughter was a newborn because it reminds me how fast she grows! It helps me treasure the current moment in my life because it will be gone before I know it. And if my daughter has kids of her own, I can pass the pants down to her baby. I think we will be able to share the motherhood experience through having the same item.

Why is it important to have an archive for the Bahá’í Community?

I think in the same way my daughter and I will be able to share an experience and relate to each other, we can connect to past Baha’is through what’s in the Bahá’í archives, especially things that relate to Bahá’í identity. 

To submit a story or item from your archive, i.e. photograph, material, item, etc, write to bahaitreasurersoffice(at) with a photo and answers to the question: Why did this item go in your archive? Why is it important to have an archive for the Bahá’í Community?
