Every City Directory

When researching urban ancestors and using city directories, determine if more than one publisher published directories. If you are only checking the directories published by one publisher, you could be missing out on clues--especially if your ancestor moved around quite a bit.

  1. archive.org has awesome research material for the pro and amateur genealogist... including city directories... all for free. I do not download the book. just "save a link" to save space on my computer. When I find what I am looking for, I copy that page with the original link to a folder. I can print documentation for the correct individual or hardcopy folder. Kris
