Researching Your New Orleans Property Seminar

DATE
Sat, Jun 15, 2013
TIME
10:00am - 12:00pm

FOC and the PRC will host “Researching your New Orleans Property” Saturday, June 15th. Robert J. Cangelosi, Jr., an Adjunct Lecturer at the Tulane University School of Architecture, will present an in-depth program on historic home research. Cangelosi, president of Koch and Wilson Architects, will outline how to develop the history of your property, using primary sources rather than oral traditions and secondary sources, which often are incorrect. Preparation of a “chain of title,” the essential first step in developing a history, will be discussed. The chain document the ownership of a property, which in theory, can be taken back to the early 1700s, during the French Colonial period. The “chain of title” relates to the property, not the improvements, and rarely will the chain alone indicate when improvements were made. Tickets: $20 FOC/PRC/LMF Members, $30 Non-Members
