Colonial Research Associates, Inc.

Colonial Research Associates, Inc., is a company dedicated to bringing history to life. We believe that too many exciting historical discoveries and revisions are held at arm’s length from the general public through boring writing styles and the seemingly intentional over-usage of pretentious words. As historian Bob Weible stated so clearly, “Face it. For as long as archivists tend only to their archives, for as long as curators preoccupy themselves with their collections, for as long as scholars write only for their peers, and for as long local historians fail to address the larger context in which their history unfolds, the history community will never realize its untapped potential for making a real difference in people’s lives.” Our goal is to breathe life back into learning about history and make it fun without insulting our audiences by “dumbing it down” or withholding valuable new information. Whether it is through our online class, When History Meets Hollywood, Real Becomes Reel, our publications, speaking engagements, school visits, or professional research for television programs, documentary appearances, and individual family histories, our mission is to take information that has been gathered at the highest level of academic research and offer it to anyone who has an interest.
