I, like many, have learned so much from hearing Elizabeth Shown Mills talk at national conferences and via reading her various publications!
Now, at the click of a finger you can access select articles, case studies and research reports and other materials, http://historicpathways.com/. It’s like having
privately sharing some of her knowledge with you in the comfort of your own home! I have enjoyed sitting in my bathrobe and slippers as I sip coffee and “learn” from one of the genealogical greats! Elizabeth
As she states ...
“For a lifetime, I have pursued those whom history has forgotten. Many have teased me through trails of burned-out courthouses and decades in which no census takers found their cabins. Most have challenged me to separate their identities from hordes of other same-name people. Many have rewarded me. Some of their stories I have told already—as tales, as essays in scholarly journals, or in books of various ilk. At this site, as time allows, I hope to share their stories with those of you who might care to follow them down the pathways these men and women quietly blazed through our nation's past.”
Does any article, case study or research report particularly resonate with you? If so, please tell us which one and why!
