Dear PoPville,

So we hear through the grapevine that our new house was previously at another location and was physically moved.

I poked around some in the 1940 census that was released recently. There are two addresses present there that are not present now.

Do you have any ideas about how to go about connecting the dots, or finding out more? At least it’s Takoma, and people cultivate this kind of history.

We looked at some suggestions back in Oct. 2011. Anyone else have any tips about where to learn about the history of your house, preferably for free?
