Every family historian wants to visit their ancestral homestead. Changing street names, landscapes, and boundaries can make this task difficult. This online lecture will discuss resources for identifying an ancestor’s address and provide practical skills for finding its current-day location using land deeds, maps, surveys, directories, and other records.
This syllabus is intended to accompany our online lecture Finding Your Ancestral Homestead (archived recording as of 3/9/23: https://americanancestors.org/video-library). It includes a reference for all resources mentioned in the session, plus links to many others.
Once purchased, the handout will be delivered to your email inbox. If you do not see the handout in your inbox, please check your Spam folder.
