Documentary Research

Chrysalis can address documentary research needs for all types of projects. Documentary research is part of the Phase IA process during which Chrysalis researches the history of an individual property or neighborhood. This includes compiling deed and tax records and a survey of historic maps. Depending on the significance of a property, more in-depth research may be required. As necessary, Chrysalis can provide various levels of detail for historic studies.
