Those Old Employers

To learn more about your ancestor's employer as given in a city directory, search the rest of the city directory as it may include advertisements or list the employer in a list of area businesses. Consider performing a Google search for the name of the business and search local and regional histories as well, many of which have been digitized at Google Books (http://books.google.com) or Archive.org (http://www.archive.org).

  1. I called the place my grandfather worked at for many years. The lady who answered the phone said she was in the progress of shreding ALL the records of the employess and could not give me any more information then that and hung up. It was the Nigara Falls New York Carbrumbron Plant.They made sharpening/wheels/stones,ect tools. Am looking for any photos or information on my Grandfather Victor Geslian Chaffee. Thank You.
