Recently, I found the following articles regarding historical directories:
- 8 More Vital Record Alternatives by Lindsay Fulton at Vita Brevis - yes, you guessed it: one of the alternatives in city directories. Lindsay gives an excellent example.
- This Underused Resource May Have the Family History Details You’ve Been Looking For by the author at the Family History Daily blog - Good tips, and I don't just recommend it because it mentions the Online Historical Directories Website!
- Who Do You Think You Are? Recap: Following the Clues with Ginnifer Goodwin by the team at the Ancestry.com blog - here's how city directories were used to find Ginnifer Goodwin's great-grandmother
- Tuesday's Tip-–Street Guide included in City Directories-Have you used this handy resource? by Diane Gould Hall at Michigan Family Trails - there's more to the city directories than just the listing of names
For pages on my site related to the above articles, visit Shelby County, Tennesee Online Historical Directories and Wayne County, Michigan Online Historical Directories. Both pages are currently incomplete, so you'll also want to check out my Resources page to find more.
