Primary Source Websites

Finding primary sources isn't difficult if you know where to look.  Start with well-known sites. 

  • Federal and state government websites have historical information and collections accessible to the public.
  • Check the Washington County Free Library databases (Biography Reference Center and more)
  • Universities, colleges, museums, and historical societies are also great places to research.


Be a Research Detective

Research is like solving a mystery.  Sometimes you have to look for clues to help you discover the information you need.  A good detective leaves no stone unturned.
