“House and Land Histories for Genealogical Research” presented by Shannon Combs-Bennett.
Our ancestors did not live in a vacuum. The places they settled, and the land they tiled are filled with information about them. You merely need to know how to find it. Using Shuter’s Hill Plantation in Alexandria, Virginia, as an example, I will demonstrate how a house and land history can add genealogical information to your research.
