Ever Wonder Who Lived In Your Home Before You? Here's How To Find Out

• You can find information on everyone who lived in a home before 1940 — including their relationships to one another — by looking through complete census records at the Newberry Library, 60 W. Walton St., or the Chicago National Archives, 7358 S. Pulaski Road.

CHICAGO — You wouldn't know by looking at them, but the two colonial-style houses presiding over the 5200 block of West Winona Street in Jefferson Park didn't always have people living in them.

The four-unit dwelling at 5216 W. Winona St. used to be the German Evangelical Congregational Church, a refuge for the huge population of Volga Germans who made up some of the neighborhood's earlier settlers, according to the Northwest Chicago Historical Society.

Records show that the brick Queen Anne-style house a few doors down at 5208 W. Winona St., now home to just one family, was also built as a church, in 1907. A graveyard was originally planned between the two structures, but new homes filled the land instead.

  • I have a pretty good idea based on the fact that I still get their mail eight years after purchasing the home.

    The little old lady who owned my condo sold "by owner." Spoke to her and her daughter several times during the purchase process of my unit. She got the last laugh on her neighbors who told her that she'd never be able to sell her condo by simply putting a sign up in front of the place.

Lost dog

There is a lost chiwawa on 85th keeler no tags. Tried to get it but it was afraid. I called animal control but I know how that's probably not going to be a priority. Hopefully the owner sees this post

  • sharon homeowner

    brown Chihuahua found between 83rd and 84th kedvale. I was told a neighbor had it checked, no chip. Dog is young, very skinny and shaky, picture is listed on facebook, link https://www.facebook.com/yolanda.salcedo.161?fref=nf . The neighbor already has a dog and cannot keep it much longer. Within the next day or so they will be taking it to PAWS in Tinley Park,

  • Pat

    Hopefully the owner will be found, but PAWS is a great place to take the pup if owner can't be found soon.
