HistoryForge began with the idea of using historic maps as portals to information about a community. Its integration of historic maps, census information, photographs and archival documents provides a unique way for people to visualize and explore their local history through the people who lived there and the buildings and neighborhoods they lived in. HistoryForge also enables family historians to explore the community context which helped shaped the lives of their ancestors. HistoryForge began in Ithaca, NY in 2016 at The History Center in Tompkins County. Its founders wanted to develop a platform that could be replicated in communities across the United States. Since 2020 it has expanded in Tompkins County and to other communities in New York and beyond.

Join Eve Snyder, HistoryForge’s Director, to learn more about this unique project and how to get involved. Eve Snyder, PhD Eve Snyder is the Historian at The History Center in Tompkins County (THC) and the Project Director for THC’s open-source community digital history project, HistoryForge. During her graduate studies, she developed a passion for the digital humanities as a tool for increasing public engagement in history.
