MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Before computers and smart phones, hard cover world book encyclopedias filled bookshelves, often times collecting dust.  But with the advancement of technology comes a new way of documenting the past.

Recently work completed on the first phase of the Encyclopedia of Milwaukee, a comprehensive resource for answers to questions about the history of Wisconsin's largest city.

With nearly 700 entries, the online resource is meant to be a helpful tool for anyone interested in learning about Milwaukee and its colorful past.

On CBS 58 Sunday Morning, Michael Schlesinger visited the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to highlight the campus-community partnership that’s promoting a digital catalogue of this community's history.

Very nice site, especially if you are interested in local history. It not only covers Milwaukee, but also many of the surrounding cities, towns and villages. Including Barton, Port Washington and Cedarburg.
Thank you to all that helped put it together, and keep up the nice work!
