National Registry of Living Historians  

The Registry performs many vital functions for historians as well as everyday people. It provides a way for educators to find speakers, groups to recruit, merchants and traders to get their web address in front of the right people, re-enactors to find each other, people wishing to become re-enactors to find the nearest group, film production companies to find large numbers of groups, and much, much more.
The goal of the Registry is to build a nationwide communications network to help facilitate the Living Historian Community.  Living Historians are one of the greatest natural resources our nation has.  For that reason, the Registry was founded as a national project to provide the premier portal of organization and communication for Living Historians as well as the private and business communities.
