MA: Mass Moments (in History)


Supposed I asked you to find some anecdotes on the history of agriculture in the Greater Boston Area? Or how about the history of inventions in Massachusetts? Would you be flummoxed? Not if you used today’s State Agency Database Highlight:

Mass Moments – Database of historical articles searchable by keyword, region, and topics including agriculture, immigration, maritime history and recreation.

The one problem with the search is that results do not display by date and it is unclear how they are sorted. But if your looking for events during a specific time period, the search form allows you to limit by date.

The Massachusetts page of State Agency Databases Across the Fifty States is maintained by Len Adams.
