A title search will yield ownership history of the property. It will not necessarily tell you who lived there. I have owned properties I never lived in and lived in properties I never owned.
Your best source of information is the seller. Neighbors, as others have mentioned, are also a good source of information. If you have concerns, make sure to voice them to your realtor, so they can address them directly with the sellers agent. Good luck in finding the perfect home for you. Dare to Dream.
