The History of Your Home: Researching Its Past by Lesley Ciarula Taylor (180)

Have you ever wondered who lived in your home before you bought it?  Do you wonder if it was inhabited by people who were good folk?

I always wonder who was here before I moved into our 100+ year home.  It is cozy and wonderful!  But one just wonders about some of the things in the home, and the reasoning behind why something is where it is.

If you live in an old home, this book is for you. It will give you a lot of information on how to do more accessing on the history of your home. The author will direct you to resources available through the Province of Ontario to solve any mystery that you may have.

Homes carry memories. They carry pasts. And they make lives what they are. The location of a home is also important. And the position of the home is too.

I loved this small book. But it was also an eye-opening book that I will remember for a very long time.
