Welcome to History, Genealogy, & Discussion
This website, Highlander.com, is an educational website that, very much like your local library, provides information and resources supporting the subjects of history and family research (genealogy). The site includes a library of typically older and easily readable and downloadable PDF books and documents that are concerned with historical families, individuals, places, and events. The site also includes an interactive discussion blog and open forum for those visitors who register and who wish to interact with other registered members or who wish to respond to blog posts or forum posts.
Our Main Message
In this website, we will try to provide enough information and suggestions to help you get started doing your own family research, or help you perform your own historical research project(s). If you are just starting out in family research, you can read online, or download, a PDF book entitled ‘ABCs of Family Research.’ We’ll also try to help you see, through stories and observations derived from our own research, how the research process works and how to use your own thinking process to be successful. Some of what we write and post may be redundant to what you may already know and understand about computers, or genealogy, or whatever, but remember – this is an educational website. Don’t hesitate to make posts or to ask questions.
After reviewing this website, and if you wish to participate in activities on this site, we suggest that you register as a member so that you are on our mailing list and so that you can use the site to its fullest capabilities.
