[JAN. 15, 2005]  The Lincoln Historical Homes and Buildings Commission will again host a workshop, "Follow the Information Trail," designed to educate participants on information sources available for research on Lincoln properties. Professor Robert Johnson from Lincoln Land Community College in Springfield will be one of the speakers at the workshop Tuesday evening.

Information sources include researching local newspapers, the Lincoln Community High School historical homes project, the federal census, Logan County history books, city directories, the assessor's office, the title company and local individuals who have information about various Lincoln homes.

The commission has awarded historical markers to 27 different Lincoln homes and businesses.

Everyone interested is invited to the workshop on Tuesday in the Pegram Room at the Lincoln Public Library. The workshop will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
