Title: Incorporating Social History Into Your Research
Description: Family history should be more than names and dates. What motivated our ancestors? Why did they migrate? Who did they interact with? How do social customs of another era affect our research? Social history and its bearing on genealogical research will be covered as well as how every serious researcher should maintain a “must read” bibliography. And where do we find what to read or explore regarding our ancestors’ social history? Find out!
