Notes from a conference regarding
"The Advantages of Interpendence Between Professional Historians and Genealogists".
In his address at the Annual Meeting of the American Historical Assoc. in 1962 entitled, "The Great Mutation", Carl BRUDENBAUGH, Professor at Brown University, expressed the fear that the speed of social change was creating a chasm between the recent past and the remote past which could not be bridged by future historians. He felt they might be unable to recapture enough sense of the past to permit them to relate it to their readers for they would be unable to feel and to understand it themselves. His solution to this problem of the continuity of our shared culture was for the historical profession, the preservers, the recorders, the interpreters, and the teachers of the past to become more dependent upon the history of individuals and the family. The study of families would show the real social conditions of the society. (American Historical Review, v. 68, #2, Jan. 1963.)
In 1974 two papers were presented at the Society of American Archivists meeting in Toronto. Kirk JEFFREY, Professor of History at Carlton College, pointed out the necessity for the establishment of an ideal of the past which can be used as a comparative base for understanding the present. He also stressed that the family is the link to the larger social structure. (American Archivist, v. 48, A, Oct, 1975.) Professor David E. KYVIG of the University of Akron enumerated the various topics which may be studied using family units as the foundation: cohesiveness of the family, decision making, social - economic - and geographic mobility, educational and religious practice, definition of sex roles, political - social and cultural attitudes, varieties of immigrant experience role of women, and relative strengths of community and individuality.
He proposed that a concerted effort be made to promote and collect non-traditional materials such as family biographies and autobiographies, and oral history, for these would tell about attitudes and culture which is difficult to find in traditional records. In his opinion the promotion and collection of a large group of these individual histories for a particular community would be of great research value for they would be a consolidated sample of cultural information. The side benefit would also be important for as families became conscious of their own valuable records, these records could then be made available to research institutions for others to use. (American Archivist, v. 48, #4, Oct. 1975.)
Samuel P. HAYES wrote a series of articles in Prologue, the Journal of the National Archives (Spring, Summer, Fall 1975) and explained that now when historians are looking to records of individuals, the genealogists are also beginning to become very interested in family groups rather than a particular historic ancestor and are researching migration groups rather than a particular ancestor and are revealing migration and community records. The opportunity for cooperation has never been greater for both historians and genealogists need to use similar records.
It should be understood that for several generations genealogists have been helping to salvage records which have provided crucial evidence for social historians. They have indexed local census, marriage, birth and death records. They have located cemeteries and transcribed inscriptions. They have had county histories and atlases reprinted as well as numerous family histories have been published. Now, more than ever, both the genealogists and historians need to preserve and organize the same records.

But, they can give even more assistance to each other. The genealogists can provide the 'raw' data of individuals and families which the historian can use in studying such topics as migration patterns, vertical mobility, changes in family size and life cycle, and the impact of modernization on traditional values. The historian, in turn, can assist the genealogist by giving a wider dimension to genealogy and encouraging the genealogist to not only include brief biographical sketches of birth, death, marriage, number of children, places of migration, and occupation, but also to include education, religion, recreation, community activities, physical descriptions of housing, farm, or community.
In the past 20 years, social historians have turned toward the study of lives of ordinary people and family units. Two examples are the Philip GREVEN study of Andover, MA, which relied heavily on the local histories and genealogies of the 19th century of that region, and the John MODEL study which used the 1820 census of Indiana to construct the family structure showing fertility on the American frontier in the early 19th century. There are many more studies recently published or in progress which use the family unit.
As you know, the number of persons interested in genealogy has grown tremendously in the past several years, I believe the current popularity of "Roots" is not a fad which will soon be forgotten. Educated persons with more leisure time are discovering that genealogy is a fascinating hobby. With the ever-increasing availability of records for them to search and the realization that their pursuit will lead them down endless, intriguing avenues of interest, many modern genealogists will become good amateur historians and will be willing and able to assist the professional historians with the preservation, organization, and the creation of invaluable research materials.
