Welcome to the Local History Wiki

A place to publish your local history. For example,

Host your local history here

Researching the history of your property or neighborhood? Here's a place where you can share your work, and collaborate if you wish to.

What is welcome here:

Articles covering topics in the following fields:

  • Details of archives, record offices and similar organisations - though the Archives wiki may be more appropriate.
  • Local government - structure, administrative bodies and members thereof etc.
  • How to research particular types of local history, topical history, and microhistory.
  • Reference materials of various kinds (and relevant websites).
  • Lists of local history and similar societies, wikis, etc, covering a particular area, country, field of interest or time period, with links to relevant websites. If it is relevant, but not yet described here - add it.
  • Developing chronologies and other materials, such as Timeline of government archives.
  • Particular lines of research - or a brief overview with a link to a website with more detail.
  • Particular types of research projects (eg Scrapbooks and local history)

Anything else that can be reasonably defined as 'history in the small scale but not purely genealogical.'

If appropriate a brief description with links (and categories) will suffice.

Original Research (as defined by Wikipedia) and other created materials are allowed - but may be subject to the usual collaborative involvement.

Cooperation/coordination with other relevant wikis is welcome.
