How Object Collections Compliment Paper Record Research (GW 28A)
Your great-great grandmother taught grades 1-8 in a one room schoolhouse. Have you wanted to see the McGuffey’s Reader she might have used? Your great-grandfather worked at Roseville Pottery in Zanesville, Ohio. Would you like to see a dish that he might have created? This class will show how objects in the Ohio Historical Society’s collections might help you understand the lives lived by people documented in paper record research. This class will introduce you to searching for objects of interest in the Ohio Historical Society’s Online Collection Catalog.
