The New England House Historian is headed to Connecticut!

Tomorrow night I'll be presenting a house history talk at the Simsbury Genealogical and Historical Research Library branch of the Simsbury Free Library. During this very special event I will be using the historic home of  NBC Connecticut Weatherman Bob Maxon as the backdrop for the talk. Join us and learn how to research the history of your Connecticut home!

As a bonus, Houstory Publishing will be donating one of their Home History Books as a door prize to one of the attendees. The Home History Book is custom engraved and retails for $300.  The prize will be given away at the end of the talk.

  1. Enjoy! Imagine having the opportunity to present on your favourite topic! And, likely get in some house-visiting while you're in the area, I'm sure.

  2. How much would you pay for a professional house historian to research the history of the house, the people who lived in it, including biographical information about past owners, residents, the builder, etc.? More information than would be contained in a simple chain of title, legal or real estate sales disclosure document. A trained investigator with historical research skills could do this for any older home (50-100 years old and older) even if it was not owned by famous or prominent people
