Talk:City Directories

From FamilySearch Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

I was looking for one or more simple articles discussing the general use of city directories.  I am working on a specific blog entry regarding Newton MA city directories which have recently become available online. I want to include links to more general articles which explain the many genealogical uses of city directories beyond just skimming for names .  I am disappointed that the only general link I find here is to a fee based website. I have found one useful website City Directories: Who Lived Where and When by Genwriters.  I was looking for more.  I hope I am using the wiki correctly.  There is so much information at familysearch's revised site that learning to use everything can be a little overwhelming.  VeaGenLib 26 July 2011

Hi VeaGenLib, I'm not sure if you found the article United States Directories, this contains a section on Works Referenced that you may find useful. To answer you other question, yes you are using the wiki correctly. --Steve (talk | contribs) 21:47, 3 August 2011 (UTC)
