The Stadtarchiv Innsbruck runs several digital projects with the aim to make material available online and to process it.
Innsbruck reminds is a blog of the City Archive, where new articles about the city's history appear daily. The articles offer the story to pictures, postcards, documents and countless little treasures from the archive. Here you can discover little pieces of Innsbruck's history as often as you like - about the monuments and churches, about diaries of the inhabitants from the First World War to small photos from everyday life in the last century.
Innsbrucker*innen - Address books of the city of Innsbruck
Innsbrucker*innen is a project to make the address books of the city of Innsbruck up to the late 19th century accessible online. As full-text recognized PDFs for download, this service already exists in many cities, and individual Innsbruck books are also already available on the Internet. However, the approach of this project is different: You can ask your questions to more than 20,000 densely printed pages from almost 100 years. The answers are in so far in the sense of the researchers, since here all books can be searched at the same time. In a longitudinal axis that is probably unique in this type of source, insights can be gained into family and migration history as well as the architectural and economic history of the city of Innsbruck.
The project will accompany the archive for many years to come, but the key features are now already publicly accessible. The staff of the City Archive is looking forward to your research questions and to critical feedback. Notes on reading and other errors are appreciated.
