City Directories are a wonderful source to help fill in details of your ancestor's life between the census years.  City Directories give information about a resident's address and occupation, but the directories also have lots of other information.  Come hear about how to use the directories to aid in your research and where to find them in person or online.  Remember, even small towns often had published directories. Lisa Gorrell is a Certified Genealogist®, who is a graduate of the ProGen program and an alumnus of the following genealogical institutes: Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy, the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh, and the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research in Birmingham, Alabama.  Her blogs are "Mam-ma's Southern Family" and "My Trails into the Past".  Please contact us at 707-334-0675 or President@gsvb.org if you are interested in attending our ZOOM meeting.
