The Historical Times of your Ancestors

There are historical aspects to everyone's genealogical research. You cannot help but to find the history of that era if you look.  Accepting other people's research is one thing, but going behind them, checking the facts at the court houses, then taking a tour of the area is a good start.  At the same time that Thomas Jefferson was writing the Constitution, your ancestors were doing something.  After all, they were part of history-in-the-making regardless of the era.  Today, every American is beginning to be affected by the National Healthcare Act. How did the events of the day affect your families?  There are probably a number of books on local histories at your library.  Old diaries, newspapers, churches, state documents, muster rolls, etc. help to give you the flavor of the times. Is it enough to know, for example, that he was a baptist preacher? Are there any newspaper articles of his sermons?  What I am saying is that there is more to records of the past than we realize.
