The National Archives of Trinidad and Tobago (NATT), is the treasure-house of our country's heritage.
The National Archives acquires, preserves and makea accessible thousands of records, of various formats, to the public. These include government records, immigration records, photographs, books, maps and more. Many of these records are exceptional in the way they reveal our heritage and enable us as a nation to have a better understanding of Trinidad and Tobago and our ancestors.
The National Archives influences all areas of archival processing throughout the Public Service and also provides services, such as records management and archival training, across the country but primarily to government agencies. Our overall objectives are to provide the public with the means to access public records, to secure information for judicial and administrative purposes, and to provide documentation for purposes of research.
Through its services to researchers and government, its exhibitions and other initiatives, the National Archives of Trinidad and Tobago seeks to connect citizens to the sources of their history.
