If your ancestor participated in or lived near the area of a major historical event, this talk will help you discover how to draw upon narratives penned by historians and other researchers to fill in your ancestor’s story. A case study on the Salem Witch Trials will highlight techniques that you can use for events in which your ancestor was involved.
