Genealogy Toolbox

Using City Directories

Expand your genealogy toolbox and join Jessie Affelder, Head of Adult Services at the Messenger Public Library of North Aurora, to discover how to use city directories in your genealogy research

Discover how to use both the Aurora Public Library and online collections of annual city directories to find your ancestor’s names, occupations, addresses, family members, and more. Did they mysteriously disappear between U. S. or state census years? Did they move, change occupation, die, or become widowed? Originally created for salesmen long before there were phone books, learn a new way to expand your genealogy research. Presented by Jessie Affelder, Head of Adult Services at the Messenger Public Library of North Aurora.
