Online 9/11 Memorials

A number of sites put databases of the Sept. 11 victims online, but Remembering the Lost, compiled by 11 Tribune newspapers, is the most comprehensive. It combines the powerful information delivery of a database with an online memorial to the victims, including photos and descriptions of many of the victims. On The New York Times site, you can search and read all of the newspaper’s Portraits of Grief series about Sept. 11 victims, hear Times’ editors discuss the series and even read and add to a collection of tributes to the victims. Internet Broadcasting Systems’ sites, meanwhile, built a Virtual Memorial where users can read thoughts from readers’ across the country and “light” their own “virtual candle.”
