 Find Your Ancestral Home in America

October 27, 2018


Kate Black


Now that you have found your ancestors and where they settled in America, have you ever wondered if the family house or farm still exists? Many of you have family homes you don't know about - but they are out there waiting to be found. In this class we will review the tools that will help you use your already-honed sleuthing skills to find where your ancestors lived and worked. 

Kate Black is a retired architectural historian and urban planner with 30 years experience. She studied painting at Boston University, Architectural History at the University of Virginia and Real Estate Development at MIT. She is currently a member of the San Francisco Historic Preservation Commission.
