Adding Historical Context: A Hands-On Approach

Adding historical context to our genealogical research makes it richer, more interesting, and helps to explain some of the changes in our families. But if you aren’t a historian how do you know when there is an opportunity for adding history to our research? In this workshop we will:
  • Practice identifying items, events, and topics ripe for historical research.
  • Once the questions have been asked, we will learn how to find those answers.
  • Finally, we will discuss how to add this new-found information to our family’s history.
