Re: Genealogist Needed
In Response To: Re: Genealogist Needed ()
1. The phone number could have been re-assigned after Robert's death, or before. It could possibly be 'miles' away from Market St. Perhaps Robert had a wife and children/grand-children still in Philadelphia. I would suggest a search of the 'white pages' by surname. If you need to FILTER the search, try filtering by zip code (a zip code map would be good to have).
2. Market Street was the last address found. It is currently in zip code 19139. I'm not familiar with Philadelphia, but google maps shows this address to be near "Lee Cultural Center" and Drexel University. Try searching for people with the same surname living in that zip.
2. Perhaps he moved BEFORE his death. The SSDI has a zip of 19144 (near Germantown Ave?).
Hint: You can do a google search for 'White pages'. There are many out there that allow you to search by phone number, address, zip, and surname.
