Subject: [ALL] Some directories ARE like Yellow Pages
Date: Tue, 31 Dec 2002 21:40:35 -0500
It's been a day with lots of activity around Pittsburgh City directories and discussion about how helpful they are. During the afternoon, I was visiting the Historic Pittsburgh website, and went to check out the 1867 directory that they have available on-line.
What a disappointment it is/was! It's arranged very much like a yellow pages, with the persons listed under their occupations, and didn't seem very useful to me at all.
So, as with everything else, it would seem that the directories can vary a lot in content and usefulness.
