City Directories: The Solution to Finding Family Members In-Between Federal Census Ten-Year Gaps

Guest lecturer Terry Koch-Bostic will discuss how City directories can establish where your ancestor lived, worked, married, went to church and their surname variants. Think of them as pre-1935 "people finders."

Terry Koch-Bostic is a professional genealogist and currently the National Genealogical Society (NGS) vice president, APG-NY Chapter Representative, and contributing author and reviewer for NYG&B's NY Family History Research Guide and Gazetteer. Today, as a professional genealogist, she pursues her passion full time and specializes in New York City, Long Island, and Irish and German-American research.
