Update 10/7/21: We're Moving!

At some point beginning Friday night, 10/8/21, the IAGSDC History Wiki will switch to "read-only" mode as we migrate the wiki to a new service ( which specializes in hosting wikis like ours. The History Project is highly grateful to, and thanks All Join Hands for funding the new hosting account. The URL for the wiki ( will remain the same.

The new hosting site will provide us with an updated version of MediaWiki that has an intuitive visual editor and other administration tools, as well as an improved search function.

The wiki will be switched back into "read-write" (normal) mode once the migration is complete, which could take up to a week. We'll make an announcement here once that happens!
