National Archives of Haiti

The National Archives of Haiti are the national archives of Haiti. It was established in 1860.[1] Prior to the earthquake of 2010, the Director Jean-Wilfred Bertrand has said that items in the archive were already damaged, destroyed or poorly housed. These items included civil registrations, and papers from the President, Ministries and Parliament. He has said that "since the earthquake, the situation is worse".[2] In the meantime, he is working with the International Association of Francophone Archives (Association Internationale des Archives Francophone)[3] who have been providing guidance since the earthquake.
