Alpena City Directory 1899-1900      migwlt-2.gif (4527 bytes)

 

This directory can help you with that sticky time period between 1900 and 1910 where the many of the mass migrations in all different directions happened, as the economy boomed and busted. 

Some of the ads are images and some are transcribed. The names have all been transcribed in order to make it easier for the search engines to pick up information.

*NEW: This directory has a section for "Mc" Surnames, unlike previous editions!*
