    A memorial is any object, whether a writing, a monument, or other permanent thing that is designed or adapted to keep something in remembrance.

A register is a formal or official written record, especially a series of entries made for preservation or reference; as, a register of births and deaths.

Muniments (Latin munio, fortify) are records that enable one to defend his title. Compare HISTORY; STORY.
