Event Details

Paul Campbell-Trimbur, the owner and researcher of Stone Barn Research www.stonebarnresearch.com will talk us through how he researches house histories. He will start with urban set houses in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh (where he presently lives) and end with a circa 1798 Stone Barn in Chester County, PA.  Many of the resources Paul uses for house histories can also be applied to genealogy research and vice-a-versa.
Paul Campbell-Trimbur is a retired U.S. Postal Inspector. During his tenure as a federal law enforcement agent, he researched and conducted investigations on such topics as mail fraud, bombs, anthrax and narcotics. He also worked with the FBI, ATF and DEA. As a public information officer, Paul appeared on America’s Most Wanted and the nation broadcast of the CBS Morning News. Always intrigued by his own heritage, Paul began genealogical research about his immediate family history (all eight of his great-grandparents are buried in the City of Pittsburgh). It quickly became clear that he had a passion for the subject and began doing research for extended family members and friends. After purchasing a 1700s barn that was converted into a home in the 1970s, Paul branched out into house histories. Since Paul has moved back home to his birthplace of Pittsburgh, he bought a home in the City of Pittsburgh and relearned his knowledge of the Pittsburgh area records and research.
