Donating your archives?

Donating your archives?

CegeSoma preserves archives and documents of private origin, from physical or moral persons (individuals, associations, firms, etc.), which can contribute to highlight the history of the great conflicts and the times of rupture at the political, social and cultural levels in the 20th century.

You wish to secure the documents from your association so that they will not be lost? Are you keeping the archives of a member of your family or a friend? Do you regret having to throw away a beautiful collection of photos? Or maybe you made unexpected discoveries in your attic?

You are maybe looking for a suitable storage place where you can keep all the archives, photographs, leaflets, books and magazines you have in your possession. Or you would like to know if your treasures have any historical value.
CegeSoma will be pleased to help you!

Why entrust your documents to CegeSoma?

  • To guarantee them a durable preservation ;
  • to stimulate the historical research of scholars and readers who visit our institution;
  • to contribute to the memory of our society
