Research Links

     When studying the past, conclusions will always be drawn by the individual researcher. These conclusions will in turn be passed along through conversation, lecture, or written text. As they move, so do the ideas and facts until they become something other than their original form. Because of this, I always recommend healthy doses of referring to primary sources. Together, the conclusions of others and your own, a clearer and more accurate understanding of facts can be attained. Below are links to both primary sources as well as fellow historians (both hobbyist and professional).
