Late Last Night: House Histories in the Digital Age

  • 9 Sep 2024
  • 7:00 PM
  • Webinar



Did you know that you can research the history of your house from your very own laptop? Join for a step-by-step guide to internet-based building history research. We'll focus on what historic information you can expect to find digitally, such as Chicago building permits, architects, insurance maps and occupant history, and how to find it. And what to do if you need to go beyond digital resources.

Our speaker, Emily Wallrath Schmidt, is a Historic Preservation professional with a decade-long track record spanning hands-on restoration, archival research, and advocacy. She is currently a senior architectural historian at 106 Group. Emily is passionate about uncovering vernacular building history, and has never met a bungalow she didn't like.

The Webinar will be recorded and available on the CGS website in the members only section.

Registration is required via the Chicago Genealogical Society website under Events. Registration will close 1 hour prior to the event. The meet-up will take place virtually via ZOOM. All people registered will receive an email the morning of the event with log-in instructions and a link. This information is not to be shared.

Note: This webinar is FREE for CGS members. Non-Members can register for the event for $10. No refunds.
