Digitization of 1926 United States Census of Religious Bodies schedules, creation of a spatial dataset, selective and crowdsourced transcription, and creation of maps and visualizations using the records.

This project will transform the 1926 U.S. Census of Religious Bodies, which has individual schedules for 232,154 congregations, into a spatial dataset. That collection is the only federal census with extant schedules, but it is unusable by researchers because it is not digitized, searchable, or transcribed. We will digitize the schedules, make those records freely searchable and browsable online, create an Omeka module to transcribe them into a dataset, transcribe a representative selection and open the remainder to crowdsourcing, and create maps and visualizations that contextualize the records. The result will be the single most detailed and comprehensive spatial dataset for American religion, useable by scholars in history and religious studies, by local historians, and by the public.
