“Heirlooms & History:  Glimpses into 19th Century Lives from Unique Family Documents” by Tom Tyler, Denver University Professor

Journals of an ancestor’s two voyages on a Nantucket whaling ship in the 1820s and 1830s led to a family history quest that is still ongoing.  A more complete biography of the Nantucket whaler and his family emerged.  A museum database available online provided useful facts but also raised questions.  The Google Books library, online historic maps and newspapers, as well as other internet resources, yielded narrative material as well as explaining old skeletons (e.g. slave ownership, murder, divorce, etc.).
