The Stockholm Story

May 20, 2010

Here’s a promising website, The Stockholm Story-Our Cultural Heritage on the Web.

If you are familiar with the Maine Memory Net project, then this appears to be its counterpart, only its in Sweden. Here in Maine, various historical societies,  schools, and libraries have collaborated to make archival materials come to life on the web. Narratives have been written to accompany photographs from historical collections. New Sweden and Stockholm here in Aroostook County (along with other County towns and cities) have placed a large collection of their holdings online through the Maine Memory Net, a project of the Maine Historical Society.

So if you are interested in seeing what our Swedish counterparts have to share with us on the other side of the Atlantic, check it out. Click on the little British flag for the English translation. Thanks to Erik Alm in Sweden for sharing.
