Welcome to the Wyoming State Archives

Welcome to the Wyoming State Archives




Whether you are a state agency staff member looking for a retention guide for your office records, a citizen looking for a school transcript or your family history, or a student doing research for a paper, you have come to the right place.

The State Archives collects, manages, and preserves Wyoming state public records that have long term administrative, legal, and historical value. These records document the history of our state and the activities of Wyoming’s government offices. The Archives also collects non-government records that contribute to an understanding of the state’s history. Records Management staff provide assistance to state and local government agencies for the efficient and economical management of records. State Imaging Center services feature digitization of records for preservation, access, and space saving purposes. If you plan to visit the archives, our reference room is on the first floor of the Barrett Building across the lobby from the State Museum.


We have included quick links and FAQs on our home page for those who are looking for one specific document or just want to talk to an archivist.  

Find It in the Archives is the place to start if you want to explore our holdings or public services in more depth.

For State Agency Staff is where to go if you have questions about managing your state office files.  Our records management staff provide guidance on scheduling and transferring your records, including digital files.
