Full-text searching provides researchers with an opportunity to search a name, business or street and compare that search to every word within the document. Researchers will now be able to find a word or phrase (e.g. Ball, George, Patterson Block, Walnut Street) anywhere within the document, as opposed to searching a set of keywords (e.g. index, alphabetic listing).
City directories in this collection are subdivided into four categories:
