In 2008, a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) made it possible for a partnership between the Denver Public Library Western History and Genealogy Department and the Clerk and Recorder’s Office in the City and County of Denver. The goal of this partnership is to conserve the historical records of the Clerk and Recorder’s Office while providing access to the public. The Library through this partnership has become a municipal archive for the City of Denver with a mission to preserve documents that have shaped the history of Denver.
Parts of the records are available to the public and part is restricted, accessible only to those individuals named in the records or those that can offer proof of relationship. These records will be restricted for 75 years to protect privacy due to the threat of identity theft. All social security numbers will be removed for privacy reasons.
