You have found a document that names the house number and street on which your great-great-grandfather lived.  Wonderful!  And, you would like to visit the area and see the house.

Do you know if the house number has changed over the years, or is it the same as when your great-great-grandfather lived in the house?

If you are not sure about this, check maps and other items that may be found in the local (to great-grandfather’s house) library.  Also, there are many sites on the Internet where one can find historical maps.

Be sure of where the house was before you visit!
