Use Histories To...

Effective family research requires some understanding of the historical events that may have affected your family and the records about them. Learning about wars, governments, laws, migrations, and religious trends may help you understand political boundaries, family movements, and settlement patterns. These events may have led to the creation of records that your family was listed in, such as land and military documents.

Did You Know...

Histories are great sources of genealogical information. Many contain biographical information about individuals who lived in the area, including:

  • Parents' names
  • Maiden Names
  • Place of birth, death, or marriage
  • Occupation

Select A Time Period to Research

  • Civil War and Reconstruction (1861-1876)
  • The Gilded Age (1876-1900)
  • 19th Century (1900-present)
