Genealogy – Not Just for People Part III

In the third of a series I’m calling “Genealogy – Not Just for People”, I came across an article by Peggy Conrad in the Woodland Progress (PA) about histories of buildings.

This article, Wilkins house occupied since 1782 construction, is about the oldest continually occupied home in Allegheny County. It was built by a German immigrant in 1782 named Christian Linhart.

Not necessarily genealogy-related, but it’s neat that people recognize the histories of older homes in the US, even if somebody famous wasn’t born there. I’m sure there will eventually be, if there isn’t already, people making their living researching the genealogies of old houses.
