What exactly do I get with my membership?

You can explore our database right now by signing up for a free trial. When you search for a topic in history, you'll get a variety of results--books, videos, audio resources, and historic sites. We will be finding and adding new resources each month to make the database even more useful for homeschooling families around the world.

When you open a resource page, you'll see different information depending on the type of resource. For books, you can link to a library search to see if the book is in your local system. For videos, we provide links to YouTube, Amazon Prime, Netflix, and other streaming sites when available. Some videos you can even play directly on our site. For events and historic sites, we provide maps and other details. You can leave comments and reviews on the resource pages to share your opinion with other parents. In addition, you will have the opportunity to participate in webinars with people who care about history and have important stories to tell.

How do you choose resources for this database?

We are combining our decades of experience studying and teaching history with the recommendations of other homeschoolers to create a comprehensive list of resources. We look at quality, accessibility, and suitability for families.

Homeschool History Top Pick

Resources marked with a gold medal symbol are Homeschool History Top Picks. We have carefully reviewed these resources, and we are confident recommending them to you. Some of our Top Picks may not be suitable for all students, so we provide notes about content you might want to be aware of.

If a resource does not have a Top Pick symbol, we may not have watched every minute or read every page. We have picked carefully based on our research and recommendations from others, but these resources may have objectionable content of which we are not aware. Please let us know if we missed something problematic.

Do your resources focus on one religious or philosophical viewpoint?

We are Christians, and our faith influences the resources we choose to recommend. Many of the resources in our database do not have distinctly religious content. Among those that do, the viewpoints reflect a variety of Christian traditions. Some resources also discuss other religious perspectives. All sorts of homeshooling families can find resources here to help them study history.
