This course will discuss the many alternatives to tracing personal histories. Your physical characteristics, where you live, what foods you enjoy, even how you think is somewhat determined by the coming together of 32 different families (if we only count back to your 3rd great grandparents). They may have been born right around the same time as our nation. Were they here during those momentous days? Your 16 great-great-grandparents were probably alive during the Civil War. Do you know where they spent those years?
The discussion will include how to create a historical narrative, where to find the information and how to preserve it.
