Historical Perspectives – Biography, Folk Lore, He

Historical Research, Records, Recollections

Researching the history and lore of a geographic area, a period of time, or a by-gone era, leads the researcher to archives, collections, libraries and attics. Chronicles, oral histories, diaries, journals, and personal recollections can shed light on the past. Communities and organizations look to researchers for historical perspectives on topics that reveal life and a sense of place. Researchers of folk lore seek clues to the past through household items, clothing, toys, and other artifacts. Researchers of social, political, and historical culture search for underlying influences. The cultural influences of music, language, arts and craft filter into the fabric of a society. Heritage brings cultural flavors ripe with tradition, holiday customs, celebrations, costumes, religion and religious rituals. The landscape influences the history of a population and researchers seek the secrets of what’s buried under the progress of each generation. Letters and correspondence of business or personal nature can shed light on the politics of an era. Historical perspectives may be found in historical publications, magazines, newspapers, or the notes in a family bible. Writing about history requires attention to detail and a sense of what’s no longer there. The writer of history and the chronicler of lore must dig deep into the historical archives and unearth the mysteries of the past. Editing the findings of an historian must be done with a sensitivity to the compilations of the researcher who has interpreted the past through the glasses of modernity and the soul of antiquity. Writing about history requires a comprehensive understanding of the people who lived, worked and played during that time frame and in that socio-political environment.
