History Ink, more then an encyclopedia
Though the primary mission of History Ink is to produce HistoryLink.org, the online encyclopedia of Washington state history, our mission also charges us with pioneering innovative approaches to historical research, education, and publishing.
History Ink offers historical research and publishing services for organizations with upcoming anniversaries. The services provided by History Ink include counseling organizations on historical research strategies, conducting historical background and photo research for an organization’s own use, research, design, and publish historical books, and design historical displays for anniversary events.
