Virtual Genealogy: European and U.S. Newspapers and Directories
Newspapers and directories may be the key to finding ancestors, stories, BMDs, including children births/deaths between censuses. Directories give occupations, birthplace, deaths, family relationships and help locate important church records. Emphasis is on European records with a list of 75 newspaper and directory websites, from both US and Europe.
