  • Debi McGee Hoag writes "Reverse address listings are priceless for finding descendants with different names living in same household." 
     
  • Linda Stufflebean says "My grandparents owned a meat market at least from 1930-1951. I was able to prove that they had opened it by 1922 using city directories."
