Are you interested in learning more about the history of your home or other historic building? This program will review a number of primary and secondary sources that can help you identify who originally owned the land, the age of the house, and more about the people who have lived there. The examples will be focused on the Lansing area, but the research strategies and principles can be applied to any geographic area.
