JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Married names of females: City Directories #general

Howard M. Relles <rellesh@...>

I recently stumbled across an unexpected way of determining married
names of females. While scanning the Newark City Directories (published
almost every year >from about 1880 to 1965) for family names of interest
ONE YEAR AT A TIME, I came across LAST chronological references to
several women in which the name of the man they had just married was
listed. I wish you similar luck. Email me for further info. on the
Newark City Directories.
I would suggest contacting the appropriate public library, university,
or historical society for other directories of interest to you.
