What is this site all about?
How do I find information on a specific topic?
The site is also rich with primary sources and historical records from the archival collections of the museum. What does this mean? Examples of census records, birth, death, or marriage certificates, land deeds, business records, diaries, immigration papers, maps, oral histories, as well as many historic photographs are available for use in the classroom. Primary sources and historic photographs are housed in a database of materials that will continue to grow over time. Please see the Search the Site page to learn more about accessing materials to use in the classroom or to complete homework assignments and research projects.
If you have trouble viewing maps or census data...We are still working on adding more items to our database and plan to offer a wide selection of these documents in the near future. Please visit again as our database continues to grow! Many of the maps on this site will be published in Portable Document Format (PDF) and require Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you do not have Acrobat, click here to download it for FREE.
If you have trouble hearing audio files...There are two options for listening to audio files: Windows Media format (wma) which requires Windows Media Player by Microsoft and mp3 format which can be played from a variety of sound players. If a player is needed we suggest downloading the FREE Windows Media Player. Click here to download
