Analyze It! Documents

People generate thousands of documents over the course of their lives: birth certificates, school records, church records, driver’s licenses, marriage certificates, letters, diaries, and medical records are just a few examples. Some people even publish documents like newspaper articles or books. By looking carefully at documents, historians can learn a lot about the past, about the story of people’s lives, and about what they thought of the world around them.
