For genealogy and family history purposes we’ve used these resources to look up addresses of former homes, figure out when someone lived there, track the value of the real estate, & document upturns and downturns in a family’s economic situation. It’s also helpful to look up any recorded documents, probate, deeds, lawsuits to track family members & add some depth to the family history.
