Re: City Directories #general

Having just read the paeon of praise for City Directories....I feel
impelled to speak. Do NOT just accept what you find online without
question!!! I recently found a page in the files for one town in, oh
let's say 1932 (I don't remember the year). Then I'm looking at a
listing in a different town some 18 miles away in 1935, and something
looked oddly familiar.....the two images are identical!! (No, I did not
check the rest of the files to see how far this damage went - that's an
oops on my part. But I did report the problem as well as I could.)

Be sure you have what you think you have.
