Michelle Kimball of the Preservation Resource Center graciously sent out info about how you can find out who lived in your home in 1940. You can also check out what the people living in your home did for a living in 1940.
Jennifer Anderson posted instructions on the PRC’s blog on just how to find information on your specific address. Visit the link below:
Take a deep breath, follow the instructions very carefully and you’ll see some cool info about who lived in your home and what they were doing for a living in 1940.
Check out what I found out about my home at 3301 Grand Route Saint John:
In 1940, Mr. Anthony Mauro (46) lived with his wife Josephine (39) at 3301 Grand Route St. John. Their two children Jack (17) and Geornina (19) lived with them as well. Mr. Mauro was a plumber and his son Jack is listed as a plumber’s helper.
