There comes the time to put the pieces of the past together and find meaning for ourselves and have a story to tell.
It is not as easy as one might think. It can also be extremely time-consuming, especially if you are not sure what records you need. There is also logic and art in writing a history from primary source material. Knowing which pieces, you need and how to put them together is the job of a professional historian.
Professional historians know where to find those missing pieces and are able to interpret accurately to produce precise & interesting narratives. All histories are like jigsaw puzzles, with the right pieces perfectly suited to fit together to show the entire picture. A professional historian is a person who puts that jigsaw puzzle together.
