Finding a history which mentions our ancestor is always a welcome find. But histories can tell us something about our ancestors even when they're not mentioned by name. What was the political temperament of their area, who were the "important" people, what social and political events might have affected their daily lives. Histories can add a richness to the telling of our ancestors' lives. For history website other than this one, visit our links page.
