The National Mall is just days away from an influx of thousands of Girl Scouts for Girl Scouts Rock the Mall: 100th Anniversary Sing-Along. I hope they shipped in enough Thin Mints for the party!
The National Archives has some great events planned coinciding with the Girl Scouts’ centennial celebration – including exhibits, a film, and a special entry to the National Archives Experience for Girl Scouts in uniform and their families on June 8, 9, 10 from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m.
Do you want to help celebrate the Girl Scouts’ big anniversary? How about joining us in a “tagalong” to tag Girl Scout-related images in our online catalog? Here are just a few to get you started in our catalog. Here are three of my favorites:
I bet these Girl Scouts made s’mores after their hard work at Camp Tocanja!
Did you know that the First Lady is the National Honorary President of the Girl Scouts? I wonder if they get free cookies?
These Girl Scouts are enjoying their lunch in New York City!
Some possible tags include – Girl Scout, green sash, badges, troop, camping, First Lady.
If you have questions about tagging or our tagging policy, please contact us at email@example.com.
For more information about the Girl Scout’s centennial celebration events at the National Archives, please see our Calendar of Events page, as well as our press release.

I am new to searching for information. Do you have any suggestions as to how to start a search for ancestors? My ancestors were Navajo and were located in the Gallup, New Mexico area. Paternal side was Mexican, maternal side Navajo. Any suggestions you have would be great.
You might want to start researching your Native American ancestry by looking at the resources on our website: http://www.archives.gov/research/native-americans/. We have a lot of information about the records we hold relating to Native American heritage, as well as further resources that might help you in your research.
Best of luck with your research,
