On the DC Public Library website, you can research your house’s address and names of people who lived there, and then email articles. Here’s how — Go to www.dclibrary.org>research> databases>local newspapers>Washington Post>Proquest or click here. You will be prompted for your DC Library card number and logged in; then search the Washington Post.
For example, type in an address with quotes around it “1606 G Street”. Washington Post articles show that a named individual at that address completed militarytraining in 1944. Earlier, a named individual at that address was involved in an unpleasant divorce. You can then search for names of individuals connected with your house.
