    City Directories are treasure troves, but this easy to follow and easy to listen to webinar unlocks the key and shows you the map to find those gems using MyHeritage’s unique set of tools. Looks like when I think City Directory I’ll think MyHeritage!

    Katherine Andrew did an excellent job on city directories. I liked her idea of making a timeline and including information that you know or have found and then finding your time line will grow. I did something similar just recently with US Census and had a major brick wall fall down in Ohio. Thanks so much.

    Results of searches at the end were amazing. Need to find those buttons. What a treasure this MH feature is. I cannot wait to try it. Webinar was well worth my time. Looking forward to more.

    I’ve started using MH directory listings. They are more full featured. Ancestry used to have directory listings, but now they are only available in their library editions. -Fred

    I learned a lot and I’ve really been encouraged to use the city directory materials in MyHeritage. I became a bit lost when the live demonstration responses were shown.
