Questions and answers on how to convert things from one unit or system to another
Forum rules
Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Does anybody know where I can find a conversion for money? Not the current conversion rates, but historic rates such as how many dollars today would $100 from 1900 be.

The Consumer Price Index is used to calculate how prices have changed over the years. The department of Labor keeps track of the CPI, and is available at http://www.bls.gov/cpi/home.htm

There are several web sites available that will do a price conversion for you:
