Program Description

About this event:

Bob Kibbee and Steve Bissen will give a presentation on HistoryForge.  HistoryForge allows you to see the population of Ithaca in 1910 by providing extensive records for each individual inhabitant. HistoryForge locates them in buildings and neighborhoods on a mosaic of Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps from 1910. The project is currently working to provide the same information for 1920, 1930 and 1940 based of off census records.

Following the presentation  there will be an open discussion session for attendees to ask questions about the presentation, genealogy in general, or to talk about their own research.

All are welcome.
