VIRTUAL MEETING: View from home

Wednesday, 28 April 2021, 7:30 p.m.

Sunny Jane Morton is a contributing editor at Family Tree Magazine, contributing editor at YourDNAGuide.com, editor of Ohio Genealogy News and a blogger for FamilySearch.org.

City directories are indispensable locating tools for genealogists, but they go far beyond connecting an ancestor to a certain place in time. They lead to a multitude of sources, contain information of genealogical value beyond the individual listings, and present a fuller picture of our ancestors’ lives.

Although the webinar is focused on U.S. city directories, many of the same principles apply in Canada. A PDF with links to major online Canadian city directories will be made available to all attendees.
