More, more, more......City Directories

I'm pleased to announce the addition of more scanned images of historical city directories for Poplar Bluff!  These are in addition to the 1906 and 1908 city directories I blogged about last month. (See previous post.)  City directories are great resources for tracing your family between the decennial Census years by pinning them down in a specific location.

The scanned images are of photocopies made several years ago to allow continued access to the information.  The originals are to fragile to be handled and are literally in pieces which you will notice in some images because they are at an angle, overlap, or are in reversed order (the left page is on the right and the right page on the left) but don't let that deter you, the information is still there and useful!

One other note, depending on your Internet connection, the files may take some time to load as the PDF file sizes range from 6-20 megabytes.
