City directories were the precursors of telephone books.  They can tell you where your ancestor lived, what kind of work they did, and sometimes even where they worked. Lynn will go over the kinds of information directories contain, where to find them, and tips for organizing. City directories can be a key source of information for the years between censuses on your timelines. Some genealogical mysteries can be solved using city directories, but the directories might also present you with some new mysteries. Lynn will show you examples of both from her research. If you’ve never used city directories this class should leave you convinced to give them a look.

Classes at the Vermont Genealogy Library are $10 and run from 10:30 to noon.  The library is located on Hegeman Avenue, Fort Ethan Allen, Colchester. Parking and entrance are across from the State Police. Visit vtgenlib.orgor call 802-350-1333 for more details.
