The 1919 Boston Police Strike Project relies on a community of volunteer researchers to discover all that can be learned about each of the 1,100 plus men involved in the strike.
Volunteers receive orientation and training at local workshops or can study the project documentation on their own. [Stay tuned for information coming soon about these training options!] Volunteers are asked to try their hand at a couple of trial worksheets with feedback from project staff, after which they are free to claim an officer to research for the database.
Volunteers work at their own pace, contributing time and research as their lives and schedules permit.
This blog site will provide ongoing information and updates about Project status and related events.
