To assist researchers in locating a specific address for city residents, NARA purchased a large number of microfilmed city directories from a commercial vendor.
This microfilm is NOT available for sale from NARA.
These city directories are available for use by researchers at the National Archives Building, 700 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W., Washington, DC 20408-0001, and at NARA's regional facilities around the country.
