More to the Directory than the Directory

City directories can contain more than simply names and addresses of residents. They may also indicate names of addresses of schools, businesses, churches, cemeteries, and other concerns and organizations. There could possibly be lists of recent deaths or other statistical information.

If you always jump straight to the name in a directory, heading right for your ancestor's name, there may be good contextual information you never see.
