A City Directory for 1941 will probably list your ancestor's address in 1940. (The information published in the 1941 Directory was collected in 1940). Some people have access to city directories through subscription databases such as Ancestry.com or through their local library. However, the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County has uploaded their collection of Cincinnati City Directories to their Virtual Library and it's accessible from your own computer! So, avoid a potential line at the library and find your ancestor's 1940 address now:
- Go to the Virtual Library.
- Click on Downloadable City Directories.
- Scroll down to and click on 1941 Williams' Cincinnati Directory.
