Tuesday's Tip - City Directory Heaven?

The library of the California Genealogical Society (CGS) will be open on Saturday, March 10th. 

Bonus time!  The Stephen Harris City Directory Library will also be open for CGS members.  Dr. Stephen Harris maintains his collection of 6,000 city and telephone directories dating from the 1840s to the 1960s.  CGS members can access his collection at no charge on two days each month: the second Saturday and the third Friday.  Members are to check in at the CGS desk first.  From there they will be directed to Steve's library.  Stephen Harris can be reached at wizard848@earthlink.net or at (510) 835-4606.

Take a look at the CGS and Stephen Harris City Directory Catalog.

Jeepers! Access to Steve's city directory library makes my CGS membership even more valuable.
