historical society

Prepared by Elisabeth Lindsay.

A historical society is an organization devoted the field of history and the preservation of historical records. Historical societies may be centered around a place, people, or particular interest. Historical societies often publish journals, host conferences and hold exhibitions.

Historical societies are an important resource for genealogists, as they maintain a wide range of record types, including many records that may not be available elsewhere. Historical societies can be found many countries and in most states within the United States.
