How history authors, experts, and costumed interpreters can use The History List

1,607 views

Published on

Individual presenters, such as authors, filmmakers, performers, costumed interpreters, artisans and craftsmen, and other experts who present history-related programs can take full advantage of The History List by using an Organization page and listing themselves as the “organization.” Complete details, along with many examples, are shown in this presentation.

There are two requirements: These are scheduled events, such book tours, lectures, or programs or exhibits at an historical society, history museum, or historic site, and that they directly relate to history.

There is no cost.

If you are unsure if you and your program, event, or exhibit belongs on The History List, ask us.

Viewing tip: Click the "full-screen" icon below the presentation on the right and the slides, including those with small text, will be easy to read.
