Dear Muffinman,

There are many ways to go about it, but it is a matter of opinion as to if they are easy or not. It also depends on how certain you want to be. Are you going to take it to the "Nth" degree? Why do you ask? If we knew the reason you wanted to know we may be able to better assist. God luck! :)

Check with local public records; for crime related contacted the local police department, or check local archived print media, ask any long time neighbor, etc.
