Social hour 10-10:30 am

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. Pamela received a certificate in genealogical research from Boston University.
