Folk Museums, Thematic Museums and Local History Centres

If your family lived in the area, a local folk museum might just hold some material about them! At the very least you would gain an understanding of their environment enabling you to turn your genealogy into family history. A thematic museum will certainly assist your understanding of daily life in the past. Likewise if you seek information about a vocation you may find a facility that specialises in this aspect of history.
