Resources for Genealogy and Family History Assignments
Uncover Resources for Genealogy and Family History Assignments
The guide will help you find resources to help you to prepare:
- to conduct interviews with your relatives;
- to use library databases and other resources for evidence to help you place your family history within the context of local, national and world history
- to explore genealogy websites to go deeper into your family's history [if required by your professor]
- to use MLA citation style to generate a works cited and in-text citations.
Don't get trapped in the idea that you can find everything you need to know by searching the INTERNET. There are a lot of great INTERNET web sites and portals and even more information to be had uncovering long lost relatives via genealogical links on facebook and other social media sites. HOWEVER, there is no substitute for CONDUCTING ORAL INTERVIEWS with family members.
