You would first want to check with any neighbors that may have been living in the area, sometimes homes are passed on from generation to generation and the neighborhood stories may have been passed on as well. You can also look in your community for the historical society if it exists, they often keep historical information on the older residences. If your home is newer and you don’t think it would may the historical list you can always visit the registry of deeds for your district, usually located in the county courthouse of town offices they will be able to tell you the names and dates of all prior owners.
