Atlanta City Directory 1912

And now for a little snake oil quackery, from the 1912 Atlanta City Directory. Seems legit, no?

Atlanta City Directory 1870

I also found a helpful map in the 1870 directory. I’ve been trawling the Atlanta directories for what seems like years. Some of the streets my people lived on don’t exist anymore, so this was incredibly helpful.


This is just as tedious as it looks. I’ve been tracking everyone I find in the city directories. This way I can sort by street address, year, name, or whatever. And I’ve added the source info, too, so that it’s easy to just copy and paste into the source citation in Legacy.
