Too many history museums and organizations have collections with sparse documentation relating to donor provenance.

This donor questionnaire from the Historical Society of Central Florida provides space for thorough documentation of an object’s history, including information on all previous owners, what the object is made of, and how the object was used.

The questions asked on the form will help document the object’s context for better historical interpretation. It can be easily adapted to meet the unique needs of any institution.
