Description

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 IV of this four-part series will focus on city directories (physical and online) and a variety of other primary and secondary resources that can be utilized to round out the story of your house or other building. This segment 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.
