Local history research can be as rewarding as it is challenging, as it often involves diverse sources and information gathering techniques. When it comes to local history, sometimes an interview, a picture, or a first-hand account can be just as valuable as a published, edited source. Researching local history topics requires persistence and creativity, but connecting to unique people and places makes the effort a worthwhile one. Use this guide to help you get started with your local history project, or use it to supplement what you already know.
