Have you ever wondered about the history of your home? Who used to live there? What were their lives like? Explore how to research the history of your home and the people who owned and lived in it. Looking at censuses, local histories, land conveyances, photographs, newspapers available at the NYPL, and other NYC institutions, learn how to construct a narrative history of your home with reference librarian Philip Sutton. The program is moderated by Lauren Nechamkin, MOCA Director of Education.
Philip Sutton is a reference librarian at The New York Public Library Irma and Paul Milstein Division of United States History, Local History, and Genealogy, where he also teaches and writes about genealogy and building history research. He regularly presents on the topic of genealogy and local history research at NYPL, and has spoken at conferences in NY and elsewhere. Sutton received the Jean M. Campbell Award for Excellence in Reference Service, 2017.
MOCA has not skipped a beat since its temporary closure in March. We've been converting our programs to online offerings and creating new digital content through multiple platforms, always free of charge—because history matters. We've been hit hard by the dramatic loss of income due to COVID-19. We hope you'll consider making a gift to become part of a continuing lifeline for MOCA. No amount is too little and we greatly appreciate your generosity. Your support will ensure the survival of MOCA which has been dealt many blows over the past months.
