The Municipal Archive opens a web portal where you can check its documentary collections (15/05/2019)

The municipal archive of the City of San Javier launches a new web portal in which you can see the recovered, cataloged and ordered documentary collections, since the creation of the City Council in 1836. The Councilor for Culture, David Martínez and the municipal archivist Luis Lluch presented today the portal that is accessed from the website of the City of San Javier, in which 4000 documents have already been downloaded, many of them graphics along with censuses and censuses, records, and other curiosities such as digitized banknotes , that the City Council issued in 1936 and 1937 of 1 peseta, 50cts and 25cts, in the absence of paper currency at the time, ceded by a collector.

"It is a tool that facilitates access to neighbors and researchers interested in any aspect related to the history of the municipality that until now had to make queries by going to the Archive," said the mayor of Culture, David Martinez who stressed the importance of the citizen collaboration to continue increasing the documentary funds "that allow us to deepen our history".

The portal, made by the company Consiliaria, contains a complete drop-down menu in which you can find photo galleries, thematic exhibitions, timelines that allow you to visualize the evolution on the same subject, or retrofotographies, such as the one in the Plaza de España, that allow to visualize in seconds the physical changes of a specific space by sliding the cursor through the image.

The portal will show all the records of Plenaries of the history of the City Council, as well as censuses and censuses, including one of 1825 which is the oldest document in the Archive and which corresponds to the second failed attempt to establish the City Council in the Liberal Triennium (1820-1823) after the first attempt in 1812.

You can also consult a newspaper library with publications and newspapers that have existed in the municipality, and even posters and programs of local festivals and other public events.

The portal includes sections for associations, the chronicler of the Villa, and for the Circle of Historical Studies of San Javier (CEHIS) for its contribution to the study of local history.

"The history of a town is not only in the archive, but also in each house," said archivist Luis Lluch, who highlighted the "Participate" section in which anyone can send documents or digital photographs in a simple way.

In the same section, you are invited to search and comment to provide more information about any image or document displayed, and to share the municipal funds for greater dissemination.

There is also an invitation to take any non-digitized document to the archive.
