The Office of the City Clerk Archives Program is located at the Municipal Records Facility. The Archival Program began in February 2007 in partnership with the San Antonio Public Library’s Texana/Genealogy department and the San Antonio Public Library Foundation. Prior to this date, there was no formal program or policies in place for the City's historical documents. The program aims to appropriately house, organize, and make available for research the history of the City of San Antonio.
