Names are crucial for finding historical information

As you do your research, make a list of all the significant names you find (include alternate names and spellings).

  • Names of influential individuals; legendary, historical, and honorific
  • Names of empires and historical periods
  • Names of groups of people, nationalities, etc.
  • Names of places; geographic and political

Knowing these can help you discover the information you need and identify the information you have.
