Local history explorer
A local historian - also known as a local historian - usually works on a voluntary basis in the field of research into the local area.
The research field of the home explorer includes all areas related to home .
This includes, among other things, the genealogy as well as the observation, measurement and documentation of topics in:
- Nature : geography , meteorology , mineralogy , zoology or botany (with the respective sub-areas)
- Culture : Archeology , history of architecture , preservation , genealogy , local history , local history , regional history , sports history , art history , history of transport , economic history
Often the local researcher - unlike the historian in the national history - has no specific academic background.
