I would be happy to help in anyway and have previously had a conversation
with Chris at NLS regarding helping georeference some of their maps.

I had been looking into creating my own historical version of OSM for a
local personal project, when I looked a few weeks ago Open Historical Map
was down and was never very usable before that. It sounds like from the
WIKI things maybe starting to happen, date slider planned, etc.
