HistoryME is a community in which we all get to tell our story and how we have all contributed to the history of Manchester and how we are shaping its future. It’s where the History of Manchester is written  by you.


Its important because if we don’t have a voice, we don’t have say on our future and if we don’t have knowledge of the past, how can we build for the future and for those that follow us.

Its simple because its FREE and all you have to do is write about what you know; you and your history, your family and friends, community and your relationship to the great city of Manchester.

Through pictures, video, stories, memories and experiences we will tell and share our story.

HistoryME will record, collect, preserve and display these for all to share and to celebrate.

WHY? To connect us together and to unite us through a common shared history, celebrating your history whilst embracing that of your neighbours, whilst highlighting what we have lost and how our communities are continuing to change.

HistoryME will provide a fascinating and unique insight, whilst providing a permanent detailed record of the people of Manchester written by the very hands that made it,  YOU!

Please get in touch and send us your stories, photographs , videos and memories and share your unique history.

Everyone has a story to tell and everyone as a home on HistoryME.

      Hi there. Apologies for the delay. Thank you kindly for that, its very much appreciated. Its a passion of mine, but very much a work in progress and a lot of work needs to be done to improve the site, but it makes it all the more worthwhile to know people are getting something from the site. I will certainly check it out and thank you once again.

    Hi there,

    I’m a secondary/sixth form History teacher working in Runcorn but having grown up and still living in Manchester, I have a very special interest in its history and heritage. Would love to interact/become involved in some of your campaigns!

    Hi might you like a piece on the WW2 Guernsey evacuees who came to Manchester in 1940, until 1945? They contributed to the war effort, and many did not return to Guernsey in 1945. My blog is at: http://guernseyevacuees.wordpress.com/evacuation/

    HI might you be interested in the WW2 Guensey evacuees who arrived in Manchester in 1940 until 1945? They contributed greatly to the war effort and many remained here when the war ended. My blog is at : http://guernseyevacuees.wordpress.com/evacuation/
