History of the Historical Archive of the Province of Vizcaya

The Historical Archive of the Province of Vizcaya, as with the other historical provincial archives, has its origins in the Decree of 12 November 1931 of the Ministries of Justice and of Public Instruction and Fine Arts regarding the system and denomination of the historical archives of registries and provincial history. It gathers registers over 100 years old, making them available to archivists, librarians and archaeologists, to reorganise them as historical archives.

Later, article 5 of the Ministry of Education and Science's Decree 914/1969, dated 8 May, on the creation of the General Archive of Civil Administration, assigned the Historical Provincial Archives the function of intermediate archive as regards documents produced by the provincial and institutional services of the Central Administration.
