Camellia, at last years Portes Ouverts they had a display of photographs, some of them very old. They had all been brought in by the elders of the commune.
We saw a photo and I said 'that's our house'. OH said, don't be daft - with good reason because I am daft - but when I asked my neighbour she said yes, it is your house, and these are all the people, and he died in the war, and she ran off with the circus etc etc. So, not the house so much as the occupants, which I guess is what you are interested in. Turns out that nearly everyone here is related to someone who used to live in our house. They all have their stories to tell, and are happy to tell them.
So, there you go, try asking the neighbs!
