A comprehensive handbook for those interested in investigating the history of communities, families, local institutions, and cultural artifacts, Nearby History helps its readers research the world near at hand. In this fully updated third edition, the authors discuss a variety of research approaches involving published literature, unpublished documents, oral histories, visual and material sources, and landscapes; offer guidance in the uses of technology, particularly digital photography and digital voice recording; and suggest methods of historical presentation. Richly illustrated with photos and documents, Nearby History is an excellent resource for both professionally trained and self-taught historians.
David E. Kyvig is distinguished research professor in the history department at Northern Illionis University in DeKalb, Illinois. Myron A. Marty is Ann G. and Sigurd E. Anderson University Professor Emeritus and dean of arts and sciences emeritus at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.
