About Primary Sources

Primary sources are materials that provide a historical record for the way life was in the past or how a particular event or movement came to be and unfolded. Such sources include first-hand accounts such as those found in diaries, memoirs, letters and newspaper articles. Video and audio recordings of events also provide historical record. Other important sources are records of government proceedings.
