JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Utility of 40+ Year Old US Phone Numbers #general


Marc DVer <mdver@...>
 

The answers I have gotten has led me to believe that I was not clear
enough. I am not asking how to find a phone number for someone >from 40
years ago. What I am trying to do is use a phone number for someone
from a long time as a lead to get more information. I can go to
Ancestry.com and get phone numbers >from very old phone books easily
enough. I was asking what I can do with that information.

For example, suppose I find that Ploni Smith in Sometown NJ in 1940 had
the phone number 4623. What can I do with that information?

I am sorry I was not clear enough.

Sincerely,
Marc DVer
