City Directories were the featured topic in a presentation by Trip Wiggins at the FRGS February meeting. City Directories can be wonderful sources of information for the family history researcher. Popular from the mid-19th century into the late 20th century, these directories were commercial publications intended to be purchased and used by businesses to help them find customers. The directories typically would contain information about most of the residents of a town or city, including household name, names of persons living in the house, occupation and employer. The directories also could include a history of the region, lists of churches and cemeteries, and maps of the area. One can see where City Directories can become a great source of information for the genealogist. Mr. Wiggins’ presentation also included information about where to find these valuable city directories, both in brick and mortar, and on-line repositories. Details on his talk are included in the meeting minutes mailed to FRGS members.
