I love history. A great deal of my enjoyment of genealogy is my fascination with history, imagining people’s lives in other times. So, I enjoyed watching this video from the National Genealogical Society, featuring Robert Charles Anderson, FASG, director of the Great Migration Project, talking about his experience bringing the two disciplines together. I really like the idea of genealogy as history on the individual level.
Take a look at the video and see if you agree.
