I'll grant that some English dialects do talk of 'istory and 'istorians

For you however, an is not quite correct since you pronounce the H.

Depends.

In "history" the 'h' is clearly pronounced. In "historian," the stress is on the second syllable, so "an historian" does sound right.

English is a weird ass language.
