Research Exercise

Using the various research databases available through the College’s website, find information about your hometown from the following kinds of sources. Use primary sources when possible: use summary and quotation to make notes below. If you find nothing from one kind of source, consider expanding your search to include the surrounding region before moving on to the next. With a little digging and some imagination, you should be able to construct a more informed image of the place you carry around with you.
