Checking out city directories can be a fun way to find out where people lived in a given year, where they worked and on occasion, other family members at the residence. Here are a few fun finds from City Directories in Lansing and Buffalo. On the left column, you'll see J.P. and Family listed.
Below, a Buffalo City Directory listing for Williams S. Wood, candymaker.
And here's one from when he and Bessie moved to Lansing!
All sorts of fun finds! I think if you click on them you can see them in a different window and make them larger or just hit control + to enlarge your screen view!
