This project documents the items brought by German immigrants to Missouri, or made by German immigrants in Missouri. The end product will be an e-edition with rich metadata built on the Scalar platform combining multimedia (photographs, 3-D images, sound recordings) and GIS. It is a joint collaboration with the Missouri Humanities Council, historic societies, and scholars across the state.
