Horace H Foxall, Jr. presents “The National Register of Historic Places – Beyond the Nomination Form”

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. This meeting will be recorded for playback by members. 

Horace will present information on how the National Register of Historic Places Registration Form can help you find information on historical sites that are listed on the National Register. Properties listed in the Register include districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects that are significant in American history, architecture, archaeology, engineering, and culture. Information on these registration forms such as historic significance, context and bibliography can assist in finding genealogical and historical information that can be useful with brick walls research. Horace will also present information on the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund and the grants that can be applied for by individuals or organizations.
