Join us Thursday, October 21, 2010 for “Home Research 201: Delve Deeper Into Your Home’s History,” when Greg Lange, professional researcher at Puget Sound Regional Archives, will use his research of a 1902 house in Fremont to show how archives information can shed light on your own home’s history.

Mr. Lange researched the Fremont 1902 Fitch-Nutt house at the request of the City of Seattle when the community rallied against demolition of the property. He’ll bring interesting maps, tax records, and directories that you would explore on a visit to the Puget Sound Regional Archives.

The lecture is preceded by a brief annual meeting. BHS members, please come to vote on certain board positions and to volunteer or comment on the direction of the organization. Join us — it’s free!

We showed you how to find old pictures of your house in this article, but there is much more which can be discovered.
