Genealogy and social history :: the early settlement of Lebanon, Connecticutt, as a case study.

Abstract
More and more in recent years, social historians have begun to work in the same field as genealogists. More than ever before the social historians have utilized the local, public records which have long been mined by genealogists, and have also employed the family histories turned out over the last century by the genealogists. This paper contends that these two groups of researchers still have much to learn from one another. In particular, this paper sets forth a research strategy which uses the methodology of genealogy to study the question of migration. The town of Lebanon, Connecticut, is used as the focus of the investigation, and we begin with a brief overview of the early history of eastern Connecticut and of Lebanon, itself.
