About: The workshop will be an introductory, "get your feet wet" type of experience. It will cover two common resources that are used to research historic homes: The City Directories and the Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps. Visitors will be shown how to access these resources through our JPL remote databases and be guided through the process. The importance of these resources will be expanded upon. Examples of possible research scenarios will be explored. They will also be educated on the nuances of doing historic home research in Jacksonville.
