Miriam Midkiff has started a new website for online City, County, and Rural Directories and it is now open! You can view it at:
If you have never used a city or county directory they can be a big help in your research. You may get the address, occupation, and place of work of your ancestor. Some have reverse directories to see who lived at the address before or after your ancestor.
The State of Washington library is using volunteers to extract city directories they have in their library so if you want to volunteer contact Terri Huntley firstname.lastname@example.org
