What City Directories Can Tell Us, with speaker Mary J. Sayles

City Directories can provide details on what life was like for ancestors in different eras. Created for salesmen, merchants, and others interested in contacting residents of an area, these directories often list the adult residents of a city, county, or specific area. Generally published annually, this resource may provide clues on ancestors if they were not registered to vote, did not own property, and/or the census enumerator missed the ancestor/family.
