City directories are a great resource to use in your genealogy research. This course will explain what city directories are, why they are important, how to find them, and how to get the most from them. A city directory is so much more than a listing that might tell you where your ancestor lived. It can tell you what type of job they had, where they worked, and who their neighbors were. Each city directory contains unique information about the community and the world where your ancestor lived. They often include pictures of places that your ancestor saw on a daily basis. When used with other sources, city directories become a powerful tool in your research. This course will show you how.
