HistoryForge Project Director Eve Snyder traveled to Washington DC in mid-November for the Social Science History Association's annual conference. The Social Science History Association is composed of social science scholars from across the world who study history.  Eve presented 'Data to the People: A Community Historical Data Project' as part of session 68 "New Historical Data Infrastructure" and was on a panel with a member of the Census Bureau's History Branch for a book about the 1940 census "Democracy's Data: The Hidden Stories in the U.S. Census and How to Read Them. by Dan Bouk" Eve also got to visit the Library of Congress' map room as part of the conference!
