Thanks to some help from the Ohio History Connection, two of our fragile Alliance City Directories are now online and available for full-text searching through Alliance Memory.
The two directories include the oldest directory in our collection, McKee’s Business Directory from 1868, and the 1897-98 Alliance City Directory. The directories include names and addresses of individuals and businesses along with descriptive articles about Alliance and many advertisements that show the businesses of the day.
Results will show the pages where your search terms occur. You can look at the pages individually or in a flip-book format where it looks like you are thumbing through the actual hardbound book. You can zoom in and zoom out to view the pages and download copies or print them out for your future use.
You can these directories and many other Alliance photographs and documents at www.alliancememory.org.
