Since starting this community, I've become heavily involved with The Rochester Wiki, a community created guide to our city which anyone can edit or expand. I had pretty much forgotten about this community until someone commented on an older post today and brought me back here. It came to mind that Rocwiki has gathered some interesting historical information that you might appreciate. Here are some of my favorite history geek pages:

If you spot any errors or would like to add your own content, feel free to do so. That is what Rocwiki exists for. In the future I'm going to cross post any major additions or edits I make here, with hopes that it will help keep discussion alive.

Also, if you know of any interesting local history not represented by the site: let me know. I'm always looking for new trivia. Tell me about something in the area that interests you and I'll do my best to write about it.

ooh, this is great. I'm a history graduate student doing my masters on something local. I'll definitely have stuff to add. I've been reading a lot of newspapers from 1912-1913 and have lots of interesting little items.

I just picked up a copy of Rochester on the Genesee at Gutenberg Books. Fascinating book!
