IslandLives.ca is a privately funded project designed to create a comprehensive online collection of PEI's local histories and related publications. In addition to making the material available (where permission has been obtained), IslandLives has also developed an innovative and detailed "mark-up" of the texts, allowing a comprehensive search by personal and geographic names, as well as other attributes. The system allows the text of family entries to be updated and new original material to be digitized and added to the collection. Additional innovations will include a "community mode" which will allow members of the community to edit material, add comments, tags, etc.
We are always interested in suggestions for new items we can add to IslandLives or people interested in contributing to the ongoing effort, so please contact us if you have suggestions.
