Bytes of History

The Objective

Bytes of History is dedicated to providing access to digital resources that document Washington, D.C. history and the citizens who are a part of that history. The collections are transcriptions of primary documents that are of such poor quality that they cannot otherwise be presented in a format that is searchable using current search engines.

The Researcher

Sandra Schmidt is an independent researcher who has collected and transcribed most of the information provided on this site. Other researchers are recognized wherever they have contributed to the collections. The collections represent the topics of D.C. history that interest Ms. Schmidt.
