Illinois History Turns Futuristic.

Illinois’ history begins with the Treaty of Paris signed in 1783; ending the American Revolution, making the region a US Territory. Under the Ordinance of 1787, the area became the “Northwest Territory” and was then made a part of the “Indiana Territory” in 1800. Illinois became a separate territory in 1809.

As an Illinois historian, I not only enjoyed learning about our state’s history, but I also like to present the stories and photographs that make our 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. This is where Facebook groups comes in, allowing feedback, comments and additional photos and images to be added to the presentations, enriching the experience of readers.

On October 31, 2012, I started the Facebook group "Living History of Illinois and Chicago®". People from all walks of life have joined to participate in this form of social history venue, creating one of the most interesting groups on Facebook. We have over 22,000 members.

I recruited dozens of Illinois community, township and County Historical Societies, History Museum Directors and career Historians. Many members are in public service including a lot of Mayors and former Mayors from towns and cities all over Illinois. In addition the group is loaded with local media broadcasters, including people from NBC, ABC, CBS and other networks, plus radio personalities from around the state. The majority of posts are photograph albums with multiple photos, which include in-depth presentations of history with threads (conversations) full of extra photos, links to supporting documents and plenty of history detective work. We can also boast about having a number of professional photographers on board who share their own work.

The group has a search function to locate posted subjects and keywords. A section is devoted to files and documents storing things like research reports, historic books and more, and a section for just browsing the thousands of photographs and photo albums that were already presented.
