Moves between cities: City Directories #general

Howard M. Relles <rellesh@...>

I recently stumbled across an unexpected way of determining moves of
people >from one City and State to another. 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 people where the entry said simply:
"removed to XX, YY", where XX was a city and YY was a state. I wish you
similar luck. Email me for further info. on the Newark City
I would suggest contacting the appropriate public library, university,
or historical society for other directories of interest to you.
