Researching Local History

Are you ready to take the plunge into researching local history? You've come to the right place.

Local history research is different from researching other topics because much of the information you'll need isn't widely published in the traditional sources you're accustomed to using.

For your research, you'll want to use:

  • Local History Sources in the Library
  • Genealogical & Historical Societies
  • Newspapers
