Family History Papers

Research requests may be sent to
Research Fees

These papers were written by students in Dr. Estelle Feinstein's Modern American History course, offered at the University of Connecticut's Stamford branch. (course syllabus attached) In part the paper assignment reads as follows,

Each of your families is unique, special; each, too, is bound up with the history of this country. The family history paper asks you to explore the unique character of your family (or part of it) and to put your family in the context of history. The aim of the paper, it follows, is for you to know more about your own "roots" and secondly to understand, in a personal and direct way, something about the meaning and nature of history -- the nature of history itself and the experience of writing history.
