Why History Is Important

My heart always sinks when people in the 'community' have no idea of what's gone before concerning Sasquatch. They don't know the names of those who blazed the trails for fieldwork, how to catalog the information, or broke down some of the barriers with mainstream America. They don't know things to look for, things to be wary of, or even when or where to ask questions.
I feel the pain of those researchers who have been here for a while and I feel the pain of those who are new to this strange phenomenon. That's why I agreed to do a blog. To try to reach out to those who feel a need to find answers, to learn things. To bridge that gap between guessing and knowing.

And that's why today I'm going to talk about why it's important to know your history and why it's important.

Some of the arguments made are that those who claim to have an encounter are just blowing smoke. They are pulling from other people's so-called sightings and are making it all up.

Pre- 1958 reports are important because they put the lie to that cop-out for non-believers. Those older reports were made at a time when the majority of people had never heard of any man/ape creature living in North America. The reports were made separately from each other. There was no way for these people to have gotten together and shared notes. The reports are separated by years of time, hundreds of miles, scarcity of newspapers traveling around the country, no phones, no national radio broadcasts, and no tv to tell the stories.

So, there is nothing to suggest that any of the people making these reports knew anything about any of the other stories. If the reports made a news sheet or some sort of journal, these reports remained buried in archives and were forgotten until after the 1958 Bluff Creek events. That was when researchers started looking for and reading through old newspapers looking for other reports like Bluff Creek.

These older accounts are usually quite consistent with each other and, when compared, consistent with more recent sightings. The creatures are described in similar ways, both in what they looked like and in how they behaved. This becomes a strong indication that these witnesses are describing a very real creature, no matter how often they are encountered.

And a consideration not often used when looking for a place to research, is the history of the area. Before a researcher goes off in search of a "fertile" active area, research your own backyard. You might be surprised at what you find in the history of your neighborhood. Libraries are a good source. Ask the librarian to help you with any historical records of the area: County histories, township histories. The old newspapers of the community. They may have a clipping file of strange events in the town.

Talk to the people who lived there. The old farmer down the road might have a world of information to share with you, once you get to know him. Once you know what went on long ago, you can start to put together patterns and areas to look at. And how much more satisfying to have your own "little" patch of woods and fields to investigate instead of rubbing elbows with every Tom, Dick, and Harry in the latest "hot spot'.

The Sunday Sermon is over. Thanks for sticking with it.
