Historic photographs from the Warren-Trumbull County Public Library's archives will be available for public viewing beginning Thursday through an online photo collection called The Trumbull Memory Project.
The first group of photographs added to the Trumbull Memory Project will be the library's Tornado Memory Project collection, which documents the series of tornadoes that hit northeastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania on May 31, 1985, leaving behind a path of destruction. The collection of photographs was taken by residents showing the immediate impact and aftermath of the event.
The project website includes a data base with the subject and date of each photograph, any notes about it and links to oral histories. Visitors to the collection can contribute their own stories and photographs through an online form.
Additional collections of photos to be added to the project include scenes of Warren and Trumbull County, people and families.
The collection will be found at www.trumbullmemory.org.
