Finding Family in City Directories  (Program)

City directories can often give more information than the obvious. Your ancestors didn't have to be city dwellers to appear in directories; they can also be found in directories for small towns and even counties. Join OGS member Cheryl Braswell as she explains how city directories can provide rich details about our ancestors' lives and how you can locate them.
