MyHeritage Releases Massive Collection of U.S. City Directories


Huuuge news from MyHeritage regarding city directories (one of my 'fav records!). They have now published 25,000 public U.S. city directories which comprise 545 million aggregated records that have been consolidated from 1.3 billion records. City directories contain an alphabetical list of adult residents and heads of household (often with their spouse) with addresses and occupations, a business directory, information about local officials, clubs, churches, cemeteries, schools, and a street guide. What this means to you - new opportunities to break down that brick wall. My Marsden Brown case was shattered through the use of an 1871 Minneapolis city directory. Yep, I love these records!

Happy searching!
