Historical Societies can be found in most towns, communities, and cities. They’re a unique type of organization offering historical information. But unfortunately, some of them go unnoticed. So, I’ve shared a couple of historical society posts in the past, “Middletown Goes to War” is one.
As a genealogist, it’s a little frustrating to know this isn’t a valued resource by some. Many don’t even know they exist and what they have to offer. Most societies are established to preserve local history. They educate us of years past, including building preservation, preserving statues and yes, local cemeteries. Trust me when I say they have so much to offer you in your research. Imagine viewing a society’s collection and find that missing piece of information. No joke I’ve broken a few brick walls that way.
They are a true asset to our family history research. Consequently, they are looked over many times. I can’t put my finger on why maybe some fail to make the connection between genealogy and history. Strange I know but, what do you think?
