Auburn HistoryForge

HistoryForge Logo

Seymour Library is partnering with HistoryForge to create an interactive web environment which uses census records and historic maps to explore the history of Auburn in the early 1900s.  We are looking for volunteers to help transcribe census records as part of this project. If you are interested in joining our effort, please fill out the volunteer application form. If you have any questions, contact Mary Lovell, Project Coordinator for Auburn HistoryForge at mlovell@seymourlib.org with the subject line: Auburn HistoryForge.


HistoryForge is an innovative digital history project led by the History Center in Tompkins County in Ithaca, NY. The project is generously funded by a two-year grant for Public Engagement with Historical Records from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) of the National Archives (NARA).
