Answer

A primary source is something that was written in the time period for which it happened, for example a letter, a map, a news article, etc. If you look at the Library Guide http://libguides.ohlone.edu/content.php?pid=558829&sid=4606402 you can review the video on how to find Primary Sources at Ohlone College which can give you a better understanding.
