Social history looks at the everyday lives of people. It can also help tell the story of your ancestor's life beyond just the name, date, and place facts that we gather. In this presentation we explore websites that provide the historical detail about our ancestor’s lives. These websites will help your research go from "just the facts" to a multi-dimensional reconstruction of your ancestor's life.
