My name is Jessica Sheets, and I am looking for primary source materials of families divided by the American Revolution. Are there any individuals or organizations you would recommend I contact? I have a list of libraries, archives, scholarly journals, individuals, etc., that I am working through contacting, including a number in Canada.
This research will be used in my dissertation in the American Studies Program at Penn State Harrisburg. My dissertation will be on families divided by the Revolution, and I am in the process of scoping out resources. Since I am in the very early stages, I do not know yet if my dissertation will cover a state, a region, patterns, reactions, etc.
I work full-time at the U.S. Army Military History Institute, U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center, Carlisle, Pa.
