"The need for identifying archival records on the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) is urgent. The Turks and Caicos National Museum is the only cultural institution in the country with a mandate to collect and care for historical and cultural records. The TCI lack a formal national archive, which has led to the loss of irreplaceable archival materials through destruction by forces of nature and by man. The Museum's 50 linear foot archival collection represents the only known archival records on the TCI. These scattered and incomplete records are the only available evidence of TCI institutional transactions prior to 1920. This pilot project seeks to identify, document, and collect governmental and other documentary records that are currently at risk of deterioration." -- Description from homepage
