To develop a model for a relational database available on the Internet for community history projects being done in the three-county rural Tennessee Overhill and Nashville's more urban Rutledge Hill neighborhood.

“We the People of Tennessee: Telling our Stories Digitally” will create a model for making the results of local history projects accessible through the World Wide Web. The project will involve an urban neighborhood and three-county rural area, but the technology of the two projects and the final product will be the same: an internet-accessible database containing files for data and narratives about places, people, organizations, art and artifacts, and historical events and groups of events, all related to each other, and tied to a map through Geographical Information Systems.
