Question: When I visit NEHGS next week can you advise what resource would help me. I am looking to see the residences of my immigrant Italian ancestors. I know they lived in Boston but I doubt they owned property.
Answer: NEHGS has a complete run of the Boston City Directories on microfiche. In our collection on the 4th Floor Microtext Library we have the directories for 1789 to 1981. I think you will find this and our access to Sanborn Insurance maps very useful at your visit.
