Primary Sources Update & New Maryland Data

Since the launch of the Primary Sources Archive, we’ve added 221 new incidents discovered from primary sources research, and 616 primary sources have been linked to incidents. 56% of the primary sources we’ve classified to date either resulted in new incidents, or were attached to incidents that came from primary sources. This highlights the tremendous value of obtaining these documents, and our efforts in scanning and classifying them.

Thanks to all who have either contributed funding, time, or primary sources themselves to the project.

On other matters, Maryland released a group of primary sources on their website recently, and we’ve classified them. Many we already had, but these are either new or updated:
