Welcome to the All-New Ruhrmemories

In our efforts to provide you with new material and exciting features, we have completely redesigned the Ruhrmemories web site.

Get Acquainted

To get acquainted, just click on Site Info in the Top Menu Bar

New Features

We have added features that we hope you will enjoy and take advantage of. Some of these include:

  • A fully-featured Forum where topics can be created and discussed by everyone. It is now available
  • A new Guestbook that includes all the information from the old one, and adds new functionality.
  • The ability to search through the photos for words. We have made significant progress in making textual data associated with photos available for searching. We still have work to do in this area, but you can try out the feature right away and if you want to help us digitize information that previously was only readable on photos, just let us know.
  • We have included a variety of  Google maps that can help jog your memories. These maps are dynamic and you can zoom in, switch from map to satellite views, and get a better idea of how your favourite places are doing today.
  • We have made it easy for you to share your precious photos or other material, with us.
  • And many more
