Brick by Brick: Tracing Your Home’s History

by Tina Beaird

If walls could talk … was your home moved, damaged by fire or enlarged to accommodate a growing family? Tina will provide strategies for researching the history of your home using government records, newspapers, phone directories, maps and other resources. Every home tells a story – what does yours say?

Tina Beaird is the Genealogy/Local History Librarian at a midsized Chicagoland public library and owner of Tamarack Genealogy.  She provides lectures on genealogical research, archival preservation, and Illinois history at national, state and local conferences. She is a governing board member of the Oswego Heritage Association and also volunteers her time with several local historical and genealogical societies.
