Your ancestor’s name may not appear in the city directory or directories may not be available. Classified ads in the newspaper may tell you where the person lived or had a business establishment. They may also help you confirm addresses for people who moved around quite a bit–sometimes one step ahead of the rent collector.

  1. Hi Michael,

    I just saw your post on Alberta Vital Records. I was really excited because I have relatives who were born, married and died in Alberta, but I cannot seem to find how you get to look through the records. Where do I find the section that explains these indexs before using them.
