Exploring City Directories

Fill in the gaps in an ancestor's history! Local History and Genealogy Librarian Michael McArthur will show you where to find and how to use Oshkosh City Directories.
City directories can tell you where someone lived, what their job was, where they worked and who their spouse was. They also might be able to tell you when your house was built and its current age!
