I love my city.  It now shows. I have a new website: https://oldpvd.com. It runs on ChronoCharts, an interactive web platform developed by GeneaLabs, bringing historical maps and photos together. Images of buildings are pinned to a historical map based on their date of construction. Historical information is available. You can add your knowledge of a marker in the comments too.

It’s a resource for preservationists, historians, and students.

Take it for a spin. No registration required.  Now think about what you can create with this platform for someplace you’re passionate about.  ChronoCharts is adaptable.  A map, a few photos: that’s all you need.


Maureen Taylor, The Photo Detective helps individuals connect with their family history through photographs. A former curator and picture researcher, she knew that a project like this could help a lot of people discover their sense of place.

Mike Bronner, owner of GeneaLabs and developer of ChronoCharts.  Mike’s a genealogist with mad technical skills, too.  He’d welcome a chance to chat about your project; it could be the next Old Providence.
