Illinois History Turns Interactive.

As an Illinois historian, I not only enjoy learning about our state’s history, but I also enjoy presenting the stories and photographs that make Illinois history come alive. The next evolution of a modern day historian is to interact with history by allowing others to add to the richness of the presentations with additional facts, photographs and personal experiences. This is where a Facebook group excels by allowing feedback, comments, videos, photos and images to be added to the presentations, enriching the experience of all readers.

In October of 2012, I started the Facebook group "Living History of Illinois and Chicago®".
People from all walks of life have joined to participate in this social history venue, forming one of the most interesting groups on Facebook. The group hosts junior and senior High School history and social studies classes and their educators, for research and  preparation of the Chicago Metro History Fair and the Illinois regional and state finals History Fair for students.

I've recruited dozens of Illinois community, township and county Historical Societies, History Museum Directors, Museum Curators and career Historians to join the group. Many of the members are in public service including Mayors and former Mayors from towns and cities all over Illinois. In addition the group is loaded with local media broadcasters, including news anchors and researchers from NBC, ABC, CBS and other TV networks, plus radio personalities from around the state. The group boasts about having a number of professional photographers on-board who share their own work of historic places in Illinois.

In 2013, I started the “Digital Research Library of Illinois History®”. Included in the Library are quite a few of my personal research papers, including series about ‘Lost Towns of Illinois’, ‘Chicago’s Forgotten Neighborhoods’, and ‘Defunct Amusement Parks of Illinois’. The Library is sanctioned by and linked from the Chicago Metro History Fair and the Illinois History Fair websites as a resource for student and teacher research.

It’s worth your time to take a look at these fantastic Illinois history resources. Join Living History of Illinois and Chicago® to participate. The group is public and anybody can access it to read the postings.
