OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Leaders in Oklahoma City are working on the creation of an online, searchable inventory of the city’s historic documents.

The project is being funded by a $185,000 grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission. City archivist Jennifer Day says city records are now open to the public for research, but most don’t have an index.

The records inventory will include real estate documents, building plans and paperwork from City Council proceedings. Many city documents date to 1890, when Oklahoma City was incorporated.

The city says the grant will pay for a project archivist, intern and preservation supplies for two years.
