 About Us

The Georgia Historical Records Advisory Board (GHRAB) was created by statute during the 1993 Georgia General Assembly. The Board has twelve members, appointed by the Governor, and representing citizens, educators, local governments, historical repositories, and professional organizations.

GHRAB works to ensure that Georgians of all ages are made aware of the significant historical records located statewide, enhances the preservation and care of these treasures, and improves the access that Georgians have to their records.


The Georgia Historical Records Advisory Board (GHRAB) promotes the educational use of Georgia’s documentary heritage by all its citizens, evaluates and improves the condition of records, encourages statewide planning for preservation and access to Georgia’s historical records, and advises the Secretary of State and the Georgia Archives on issues concerning records.
