Photograph analysis by Arlene H Eakle( Book )

4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The booklet explains how family photographs can be used to teach about history, life style, and social values. The approach can be used in elementary or senior high classes in history, social science, or humanities. The personal aspect of using family photographs is seen to be important in ensuring student interest. As historical documents, photographs provide a sense of reality. Several photographs are shown and analyzed to illustrate how physical objects, body language, facial expressions, and positioning of people can tell a lot about the historical period, relationships between specific people, and personality traits. Dating can be done by identifying the photographic process (daguerrotype, ferrotype, celluloid) and the studio backdrop (curtain, rustic glade, railway car). Comparison of aerial photographs of specific regions over time illustrates economic change and growth. These changes imply transformations in family life as well. A section on illustrating family history suggests ways to create moods or tell sequential stories through photo essays, illustrate written histories with sketches or water color paintings, and produce home movies and slide presentations.

Virginia by Arlene H Eakle( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The words, "the courthouse burned", or "the family Bible was lost coming West," or "the church house was torn down when the Mall was built," can strike terror to a genealogist's heart. You finally have what you need to begin your research in Virginia sources--when you discover that the courthouse burned in the county where your ancestors lived. Not to worry! Genealogists, and those who support their efforts, have been at work for generations, reconstructing official marriage records from originals in private hands and collecting substitutes--newspaper announcements, court and estate files, family Bibles, biographical statements in church books and legislative claims, tombstone inscriptions, military pensions, and other sources. In-depth analysis, historical understanding, and using the correct jurisdictions are critical to your research success. How much data you extract from the records, how carefully you study that information, and your level of understanding of the records and the context of the facts they hold will determine how easily you can locate those elusive ancestors. This research guide will give you some great resources, strategies, and instruction helping you with your family history research questions."--Back cover

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pamphlet traces the social history of Woods Cross, Utah from pioneer arrival in 1847 through 1976. Each street of the town serves as the focal point for a discussion of the role of each family in the town's history. Content includes establishment of railway lines and a depot, growth of water companies and recurrent local water problems, documented rationale for Mormon polygamy, records of arrests for polygamy, processes employed by molasses-making mills, changes and growth in the business district, comparative demographic profiles of the town in 1880 and 1976, occurrences of twins throughout several generations, and the role of local women in the suffrage movement. Many photographs, sketches, and street maps illustrate the text. A concluding discussion about the future of Woods Cross emphasizes the location of the town with respect to oil refineries and processing plants. The authors encourage oil companies to locate in the town and foster growth, on the condition that the historical qualities of the town are kept alive. (Av)
