DoHistory. A site that shows you how to piece together the past from the fragments that have survived. Our case study: Martha Ballard


Thatcher Ulrich, Laurel

This site is, as the editors point out, "an experimental, interactive case study that allows its users to experience the process of piecing togehter the life and wolrd of an 'ordinary' person in the past. At the site, users get to try to piece together the world of 18th century midwife and healer Martha Ballard, whose remarkable diary was the basis for the Pulitzer Pize winning book and the PBS filmA Midwife's Tale. ... DoHistory guides its users through the research process, engaging them interactively with documents and artefacts from the past. Users get to learn some of the techniques and skills required to do history themselves by following in the footsteps of an exceptional historian, Harvard Professor Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, the author of the book A Midwifes Tale".
