Denys spent the winter doing a lot of reading and has two history books to recommend. Ready to break the narrative of what you know about American history? These books will do it!
Sometimes when you can’t make progress in genealogy research, its because you don’t understand the history of the time and place you are searching. In public schools we learned a simple version of history because every school used the same textbooks across all states.
Fortunately we have authors who look at the historical record and can tell us what happened in our past in new ways. Check out the books below and give them a try to get new insight into Pennsylvania history and your ancestors.
