It is a great pleasure to see Nearby History in a new edition that brings this public history classic up-to-date with instruction and information on using the internet and other new technologies for research. For more than one generation, Kyvig and Marty's book has served as an invaluable reference work - for amateurs and professionals alike. Now a new generation of students will benefit from their experience and sensible advice. -- Arnita A. Jones, executive director, American Historical Association
David E. Kyvig and Myron A. Marty have produced a classic book that only gets better with age and updates. As technological advances allow ordinary individuals to capture images and audio in high-quality digital formats and become their own documentarian, Nearby History offers a how-to guide for anyone interested in high and low technology to document and discover the historical meaning of things under our very noses. -- Thomas F. Schwartz, Illinois State Historian
Genealogists can be greatly helped by the recently released third edition of Nearby History, one of a series of technical books published by the American Association for State and Local History.....Originally published in 1982, this third edition notes that changes in technology over the last 30 years means there are new ways to gather and preserve information, making this new edition necessary. With those updates in place, Nearby History can be a valuable tool to the 21st century genealogist. * Illinois State Genealogical Society Quarterly *
Nearby History has inspired individuals in college classrooms, local historical societies, libraries, and museums across the United States to promote historical understanding and methods through the use of local history. No doubt the book will continue to do so. Those teaching courses on local history, public history, or research methods would gain the most from Nearby History and should give it serious consideration. * Teaching History: A Journal of Methods *
