City Directories are the “phone books” of old and there are many freely available online or via subscription sites like ancestry.com. A city directory most often contains residents listed in alpha order, with their occupation and address.
It’s easy to take the basic information and construct a timeline. I made this quick one in Powerpoint. Perhaps the most interesting thing for me was discovering that Rebecca Marnie briefly moved from Philadelphia to Camden. The timeline is also helping to make some assumptions about when she died, but now I have a new location to search as well.
Do you use City Directories in your research?
