Help build the HistoryForge database! We hold community transcription sessions twice a month on Saturdays from 11-1.  Join us to help finish transcribing the 1880 census for the City of Ithaca! In 2022 we will begin work on the census records for the Town of Caroline (1880-1950) and the 1950 census for Ithaca!

Please complete the Volunteer Application here: https://forms.gle/HQ3LKQX8QPc76MnA9 for access to the Zoom conference link. To help with our behind the scenes processing of volunteer materials, please complete the volunteer form at least 4 days before the session.

HistoryForge is a digital mapping and transcription project from The History Center in Tompkins County. We need help digitizing information from the 1940 Ithaca census to add to our HistoryForge database! Volunteers will read through the handwritten census notes from 1940, re-type/and or scan information about individuals, buildings, and businesses from that time period.

YOU WILL NEED: A laptop or desktop computer, stable internet connection

HistoryForge is a digital history project from The History Center in Tompkins County which combines historic maps and photos with census records of the people who lived in Ithaca, creating a way to visualize the history of Ithaca in the early 1900s. Learn more about the project here: thehistorycenter.net/historyforge and the start of our database creation here: www.historyforge.net

HistoryForge is made possible by generous support from the  National Historical Publications and Records Commission.
