Heritage conservation, from the word heath, is research into one’s own living environment. Local history is an intangible cultural heritage and includes all sciences on a local or regional level, with the aim of acquiring local knowledge.
The research can focus on the history (e.g. through archaeology), geography, demography, genealogy, dialectology, toponymy, geography, biology and ecology of a place of residence or environment. Local history can focus on both the present and the past.
