MyHeritage Makes City Directories Available Free for Limited Time
MyHeritage is making its collection of U.S. City Directories free to access from December 2-7, 2021. It is one of the most important collections you can use in your genealogical research.
This collection includes over 561 million records in 26,000 published city directories between 1860 and 1960. They typically include names, names of spouses, addresses, occupations, and workplaces, which makes them a rich source of information about family members in the United States — especially as an alternative to missing or destroyed census records. The MyHeritage collection is especially valuable because of its advanced indexing and multiple record consolidation, which make it much easier to find what you’re looking for and track your ancestors’ progress over time.
This is amazing news for anyone looking to dig deeper into their roots in the United States. You are welcome to search the collection now and check out the blog post to learn more.
