After a number of requests by Preservation Racine members, we are very pleased that our President, Perette (Pippin) Michelli has agreet to contact a series of meetings on the methods to garner the history of buildings. Our first meeting will present the first thing every researcher needs: to get the legal information. This is prerequisite for locating the property in the tax records, register of deeds, and historic maps. After this, we’ll take a look at a few significant building styles to show how they add to the information about the original property owners. This will be a multiple choice quiz-game, with shout-out answers.
