    A support community managed by the National Archives for researchers, citizen historians, archival professionals, and open government advocates


    What is History Hub?

    History Hub is a crowdsourcing platform sponsored by the National Archives. It is a place to ask questions, share information, work together, and find people based on their experience and interests. Experts from the National Archives as well as other experts, history enthusiasts, and citizen archivists are available to help with your research.


    What can I do with History Hub?

    History Hub offers tools like discussion boards, blogs, and community pages to bring together experts and researchers interested in American history. Think of it as a one-stop shop for crowdsourcing information related to your research subject.


    Why is the National Archives offering History Hub?

    We hope to connect with and better serve customers interested in the historic records we hold. Let us know how we're doing!


    How do I ask a question?

    It's easy! Type your question into the "What is your question about?" field on the homepage.  History Hub will suggest similar posts that may answer your question.  If not, just create a free History Hub account and submit your question to be answered by archivists, users, and other experts. For a more detailed explanation and screenshots, see How to post a question on History Hub.
