The National Register of Historic Places is a federal program that creates an official list of historically significant places worthy of preservation. The National Park Service manages the program.
In most cases, a Historical Society cannot provide monetary appraisals, but they can provide insight into why an item has historic value. They may also provide the names of reputable appraisers in the area.
The local Historical Society or library may have a variety of documents and records that can help you to research your ancestors. Ship registries, immigrations files, birth and death certificates, church registries, and civil and military records can all be extremely helpful in this kind of research.
