The Basics of House History Research -- Part III

11/07/2020 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PT


Virtual Event


  • $10.00


Have you ever wondered who lived in your house before you? Or maybe even who built it? What was your neighborhood like when your house was first built? How has it changed? Researching the history of your house can answer many of the questions you might have.


Please join us for this Zoom webinar as AHC Education Manager Val Ballestrem takes us through some of the steps necessary to uncover the history of your vintage house (as well as most any other building in the Portland area). Using the latest online sources, local archives, and libraries, you'll learn that the process is not so mysterious when you know what steps to follow and where to look.


Part III of this four-part series will focus on utilizing digital newspapers to find out details about your house or other building. We'll also take a look at how to find owner, builder, or architect information from the Portland Daily Abstract. Each segment in this series will include a short presentation and ample time for live Q & A.


Each segment in this series is FREE to AHC members (you must use your member log in to register) and $10 for the general public. Here's a link to more information about AHC membership.

Registrants will be sent an email with a link to the webinar at least 24 hours prior to the date of the event.
