City Directories

As I mentioned yesterday, city directories are another source to research. If you find ancestors on there, look for the information on whether they are renting or if they own. If they own, look for the land deeds. If they are renting, look for the land deed, researching by address as well. You never know, the owner of the place might be a family member. If you live in the same city, go to the address and take a photo.
