Dear Genners,

The subject of searching City Directories has surfaced again.
In addition to Joe Fibel's good advice, here is another resource
which has been of great help to me and to others in the past:

City Directories:
You can obtain some great help, by going into:
http://userdb.rootsweb.com/citydir/ - there is no charge for subscription
and you can unsubscribe at any time.

Then, post a message on: CITY-DIRECTORIES-L@...
and ask for the help you need - put the name of the city in cap's, at the
beginning of your subject line, and then outline the rest of the subject -
such as: "NEW YORK CITY - GOLDBERG - 1960's lookup request"

Make your subject heading clear & concise, to get more responses.
Put city, year/s you want & surname. Many people won't open messages
that don't state what people are looking for.
This is all run by private volunteers.
