Tips for Local History Research
Conducting local history is highly dependent on the location you are researching. Here are some general tips to get you started:
- Remember you can think of a location as a town, but also a county or state.
- Many town, counties and states have their own historical societies or museums.
- Many public libraries have local history collections.
- There may be books published on your location.
- State government websites often have links to town, county and regional pages.
