Hunting for Your Ancestor’s Employer

To learn more about your ancestor’s employer as given in a city directory, search the rest of the city directory as it may include advertisements or list the employer in a list of area businesses. Perform a Google search for the name of the business, search old newspapers, and search local and regional histories as well, many of which have been digitized at GoogleBooks (http://books.google.com) or Archive.org (http://www.archive.org).
