Should We Visit Historical Societies?
Posted: 09/19/2013 - 12:38 pm
We are a genealogical society and genealogy and the processes related to doing genealogical research are obviously a society priority. However, many genealogists think it is important to understand the historical context of the times in which their ancestors lived. Historical societies can be invaluable in adding that context to your research. Would you want to have the opportunity to visit local historical societies? There are many in Hamilton County and I would be willing to make arrangements if there is interest.

Absolutely!  In fact I would suggest taking this understanding a bit further by reseaching into the culture of one's ancestors as well.  There are many avenues to do this... Art, Books and so forth....
