HistoryForge Volunteer Training Sessions
January 24 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Do you love local history? Join Auburn HistoryForge!
Auburn HistoryForge is an online interactive database that maps information from the censuses of Auburn, NY, onto historical map layers. Residents and historians can use this powerful search engine to explore the buildings, neighborhoods, individuals, and families of early 20th-century Auburn.
Interested volunteers can join any of our scheduled training sessions in Seymour Library’s IDEA Lab. Volunteers need to attend one session, where they will learn how to transcribe census records for Auburn HistoryForge. Current volunteers are also invited to join the session for in-person transcribing. It’s fun, informative and contributes to our understanding of today’s Auburn by understanding its past.
Visit https://auburn.historyforge.net/ to begin your exploration, and contact the library to register for our upcoming transcription session. Can’t make an in-person training session but still want to volunteer? Sign up online to schedule an individual training.
