AUGUSTA — The Kennebec Historical Society’s January public presentation “Researching the History of Your House,” will begin at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18, at the Lithgow Public Library, Community Meeting Room, 45 Winthrop St.

The group will discuss how to utilize existing land and other records to reconstruct the past of your house and learn about past occupants. Included will be an overview of the registry of deeds and other sources, strategies for identifying and extracting pertinent information and tips for dealing with “stone walls” and other problems.

The speaker, Richard Bridges, is a Maine native and a graduate of the University of Maine and the Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law. He has been a practicing attorney since 1983, concentrating on real estate and probate law. He also serves as an adjacent instructor at Central Maine Community College and as a research consultant for the Augusta Historic Preservation Commission.

The presentation is free to the public (donations gladly accepted).
