Don’t Lend Your Directory

Don't Lend Your Directory
Don’t lend your directory. Your neighbor is as able to purchase one as you are.

The 1882 Atlanta city directoey cost $5. The inflation calculator I used says that’s $110 in 2015 dollars. I think I’d lend mine to my neighbors. It’s not like someone who couldn’t afford one would magically be able to purchase one, if their neighbor decided to be a stingy noshareasaurus. (Kinda like file sharing. No one has been able to prove that it hurts sales.)

In genealogy news, I got all the Atlanta city directory entries for James R. Thompson and Martha J. Edmonds entered into Excel and Legacy. That was a monumental task. I still have the rest of the Atlanta Thompsons to do, but it’s a start.
