FREMONT - You probably have heard the expression, "If these walls could only talk." The Hayes Presidential Center can help you give voice to the walls of your home with its class "Tracing Your House's History."
Head librarian and veteran genealogist Becky Hill is instructor for the 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. April 6 class in the Hayes Museum. Pre-registration is required. Cost is $10 for adults and $5 for students.
Call (419) 332-2081, ext. 231, or e-mail bhill@rbhayes.
Hill explains how to use printed resources and online sources to get to the root of a home's past. She guides attendees in identifying prior owners of structures, as well as the history of the properties. Among the reference materials Hill highlights are deeds, Sanborn Maps, city directories, and tax records. Attendees also will be introduced to the wide array of resources available in the Hayes Research Library.
"Tracing Your House's History" is one of a series of 11 "Learning about the Past" classes offered by the Hayes Presidential Center this year.
