"history and there is "recorded" history"
Recorded in oral traditions or in writing, accounts of the same incident should match. Otherwise, one of them isn't history.
A person might see your "history" as like, say, RCC Magisterium, while "recorded history" might be, say, the Bible. My experience with both is that there are great gaps between the two, yet the Church teaches this should not be so.
ARTICLE 86 CCC
86. "Yet this Magisterium is not superior to the Word of God, but is its servant. It teaches only what has been handed on to it. At the divine command and with the help of the Holy Spirit, [Magisterium] listens to this devotedly, guards it with dedication and expounds it faithfully. All that it proposes for belief as being divinely revealed is drawn from this single deposit of faith."
Ever since Luther and his kind it has been possible for literate persons to compare Magisterium and scripture side by side. RCC teaching authority [Magisterium, by RCC definition] has suffered ever since.
My advice? Mow your lawn, wash your car, wear nice clothes, don't rock the boat. Then you'll be recognized as Catholic, giving a witness to the world.
