Humans do not exist in a vacuum of names and dates. Historical research can help you "fill in the gaps" of your family's history and turn a series of facts into an interesting story. Reading about a time and place in which your ancestors lived can five you a general idea of what they may have experienced in their lifetime. This, in turn, can give you ideas of places to search for missing data, such as war memorials, local newspapers, and travel records.
