Researching the History of a House  (Online Events)
2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Online - Registration Required
Enoch Pratt Free Library Virtual program!
Just because a house isn’t a famous landmark, doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a rich history. Researching a building or property can require knowledge of many of the same resources as genealogical research.  And it can be an exciting trip into the lives of those who lived or worked there. In this program, we will talk about where to find government records related to a building or property, how to research historical archives for information, and what to look for on site for clues. Presented by Julie Saylor, Librarian in the Maryland Department, Enoch Pratt Free Library/State Library Resource Center. 

This program is presented in collaboration with the Keswick Wise & Well Resource Center.  To register for the event, please call the Keswick Center at 410-662-4363.
