Librarian Betsy recently announced the purchase of two new books for the CCGS Library.
History for Genealogists: using chronological time lines to find and understand your ancestors, by Judy Jacobson, helps genealogists put into historical context the events of an ancestor’s life. The book shows how a time line may answer the question “Why did they leave?” There are examples of military timelines, and timelines based on religious events, diseases, natural disasters, economics, etc. One chapter includes a discussion of transportation.
Both national and international timelines are included, with some examples specific to each state. This book may be found among the research guides for genealogy at 929.1 JAC.
