Welcome to the Provincial Archives of Åland
The Provincial Archives of Åland is the archives authority of the autonomous province of Åland in Finland. We acquire, manage and make publicly available records that reflect Åland's history. With the support of the Archives Act of the Province of Åland (2004:13) we regulate and develop the records and archives management in the public administration of Åland. We also offer council and advice to the local authorities in the areas of records and archives management.
Our collections include a wide selection of textual records, photographs and negatives, slides, films and cartographic records such as maps and plans. The Provincial Archives of Åland also has a large library focusing on the history of the Åland Islands.
On this web site you can find more information about the archives we keep and the services we provide. We are currently working on making our collections available digitally.
