for some reason this has concerned me. how do u find out the history of a house? my mothers house is haunted and i want to research the house to see if i can find anything on it and maybe find out who this man is that lives there also. my mother doesnt own the house she rents it. so is it possible to research it? if u have any info please let me know. thank you very much.

Your local Historical Society. Maybe Bureau of Deeds & Records, or whatever it's called in your town government.

There's a woman here at work who says she has a ghost. She says she moved w/her from her last apartment.

Why would the ghost choose to move with a person? Formed an attachment? Thats a scarey thought that you couldn't get rid of it.

Check out back issues of your local paper once you've researched the owners, perhaps you'll find a story.

I forget what her theory is on that. Maybe that it "belonged" to a certain piece of furniture? Not sure. But she doesn't mind. The ghost is benign. And she's into ghosts so she likes it. :)

Whoa! Weird. How did the fire start? Was your friend still living there at the time?

have you tried the micro film of old papers at the library.what about land litles(or where ever you register you land ownership in u.s.

what about older neibours , have you talked to them.seniors tend to know a lot about things like that.

years ago we had a home coming in a town we lived in . they had signs in front of most of the houses telling who lived there fron year to year.it was cool. town office supplied all the info. they might be able to help you at a local church.try city office.

if you can get a name, then hit the phone book and look for relitives.

i dont think any ghost will just move with you. i think its a family member thats just watching over you or a really close friend.

i really hope to find out who this guy is.
