Learn how to use land records and local resources to discover the history of your home online.

Join Bryna O'Sullivan from Charter Oak Genealogy to discover the history of your home. Whether you want to learn how to document a historic property for preservation, to learn a bit more about your home’s prior residents, or to get a glimpse of an ancestor’s home, there are resources available to help.  This program will teach you how to navigate land records to build a timeline of the home's ownership and how to use maps, photos, local histories, and more to help tell your home’s story. While this program will focus on resources to document New Haven area homes, many of the featured collections can be used to document homes elsewhere in the state.

This is a Zoom program and requires registration. You'll be sent a link a week before the event.
