Barry’s GenSites: Distant Cousin

The availability of US Directories is not as consolidated as those for the UK. This website has a nice collection of online Directories (and other records) which have frequently helped track a family through the years in between the decennial census records. If you don't find the records for your city of interest online, check out City Directories of the US, which encompasses print, microfilm and online Directories. Basting more than 6 million records from more than 1,500 sources, this site is strongest on often overlooked resources such as city Directories and school alumni lists. But it's also worth a check for vital records, military records, obituaries and stubborn surnames.
