A youth services librarian and educator has been running a fun beginner’s historic research class online over the last few months during this difficult time with schools’ being out and social distancing. She shared with your webmaster that you all might enjoy hearing that they were able to get some great use out of our historical society’s website and favorite research resource links list. They were even able to use some of this information for a mini-project last week.
So the New Brighton Area Historical Society is going to pay it forward and share a source they have been using on researching the history of a house, which includes a great breakdown of the research process, census records, helpful search resources, former owner databases, etc.
So this post is for other young (or old!) historic research enthusiasts who have an interest in learning more about their homes, in addition to their family history over the summer and during this down time (like their group)!
