Re: CITY DIRECTORIES
In Response To: CITY DIRECTORIES ()
City directories are awesome. Before 1940/50 census I was able to follow surnames all thru the city. I found male surnames. It is difficult to keep up with the ladies. A lot of families tried to live close together. When times were really tuff, they would stay in the same housing. Then you would see different surnames at the same address. That's when I would make note of it and and follow those names.
