Course Description:

Ever wondered about the history of the houses where your ancestors lived? Curious about the history of your own home? Each one has a story to tell. Every family has left their mark on their homes, just as these homes have left their mark on those who lived there. The census, maps, deeds, wills, photos, directories, and newspapers help us discover insights into our family histories. Librarian and historian Kathy Nielsen takes us on an expedition into the past and, through her own journey, shows us how to search for information about our own homes and those of our ancestors.
