Feb Gen Mtg: City Directories: A Window into your Ancestors' Lives

Event Date: 
Saturday, February 23, 2019 - 10:30am to 12:00pm

Presenter: Pamela Brigham

City directories sometimes are referred to as census substitutes, yet they are much more. They are a source to an inside view of your ancestor’s life. You can track cities that your ancestors lived in over the years, develop a history of the town, and view social meetings that your ancestor may have attended. The pictures in city directories can provide a rich window into what your ancestors may have seen as well.

Pamela Brigham is the President of the Silicon Valley Computer Genealogy Group and a devotee of using technology in genealogy. She teaches classes in genealogy including using online research programs.
