Wouldn't it be great for genealogists if State and Federal governments had conducted annual censuses? Knowing exactly where our family members were living year-to-year would allow us to fill in many gaps in our family histories. Alas, all is not lost! City directories are a wonderful census-like substitute, and in many areas of the United States, they were published yearly. This webinar will focus on techniques for using historical and digitized city directories to trace our families.
