Description:
 Speaker Grace DuMelle will give two presentations: "Unlocking the Doors to Your Homeís Past"--Satisfy your curiosity about your own home or one in the family. Learn techniques for dating a residence, discovering the architect, and unearthing old photos and plans. You can also find out who lived there, what they did for a living, and other fascinating tidbits. "Tools to Dig Deeper: Probate and Inquest Records"--Itís worth looking for a probate case even if you think your ancestor didnít have money. You can find relatives you didnít know existed, a listing of property and furnishings, and bills from service providers. When you see a coronerís signature on a death certificate, or have a newspaper account of an accident, obtain the inquest to open a fascinating window on the circumstances of the death.
