Good Morning Fellow Historians,

Though I have been absent from this blog for several weeks, I have been fully engaged in all things “historical”. My own family history project is coming along nicely. In my never ending quest for grant money, I came across a defination of history that struck me.  Basically, “history is the documentation of events that are remembered and preserved in some authentic form”. Literally, that which is written, said, and physically preserved. Your own journals and family histories can add to the historical record and will actually enhance the record. If history is documentation of events remembered, then we all need to document our lives.  On some level, you have made history today; make sure to save it!
