Welcome to Bluepages, the global historical directory that anyone can edit!

Our goal is to put together the histories of everyday places – local schools, parks, businesses, and roads, for example – in your neighborhood and all over the world.


We currently have 279,922 articles, but almost all of them are automatically generated and need a human being like you to help improve them.

To get an idea of the kind of content we're trying to build on this website, take a look at some example articles. You can also see our collections of information on large chain businesses, or our category system. And if you want to get started with helping us grow, check out the guide to editing Bluepages.

As you may have already noticed, Bluepages runs on MediaWiki, the same software used by popular websites like Wikipedia – so if you're still confused about anything after reading the guide, Wikipedia may have a guide of its own that will help. If you're an experienced Wikipedia editor, you might want to read about some of the major differences between their site and ours. And please see if you can help with our to-do list of long-term goals for a vibrant Bluepages community.

Bluepages is hosted by Miraheze, a non-profit wiki hosting community. They're run by volunteers, and they would really appreciate your donations to help keep this website and thousands of others running smoothly.
