Our ancestors’ lives did not consist of just the facts we typically look for in historical records. Cultural customs and conventions, political and economic factors, and the different communities in which they lived, worked, and worshipped impacted their everyday lives as well as the major decisions in their lives. Social history helps us develop a more holistic approach to research.
You will walk away from this lecture with a different perspective for researching your ancestors.
