About the Study Homer is a lovely village or town in central New York. Settled in the late 1700's, Homer has retained most of its historic buildings and houses. The Homer Landmark Society has worked to have much of the village designated as historic landmarks. The local government has approved the digitization of many of the historical documents which will be used in this study and the documents will eventually be displayed on the town's website. The one-place study is focused on Homer's first 100 years.

Goals of this study:
1 - Create a genealogical database of all early settlers of Homer using as many primary and secondary sources of information as can be found and documented;
2 - Include as many primary and secondary sources on the website as possible, or links to where they are available if they are online;
3 - Create an image database for locations and individuals;
4 - Analyze information in new ways that will tell us more about Homer and its inhabitants, and may provide insight into similar places;
5 - Collaborate with others interested in Homer - provide a depository site for replicas of artefacts that are only available in personal collections;
6 - Digitize historical records;
7 - Have fun!
