Reporting Content Errors:

Content errors (filing order, typographical mistakes, character omissions, date errors, etc.) can be identified and traced all the way back to the printing of the original paper directories. Some of these errors have been fixed during the conversion process, yet the digitization work may also have introduced new content errors from time to time into the directories. We would appreciate your help in finding and fixing these errors that occur within the roughly 1.9 million entries included in the city directories and the 2,000+ information records for the images. If you find an error, please report it via email to the DCA.

Please include a description of the error (copying a line of text and pasting it into the email is recommended), the complete URL of the page where you have found the error, and any additional information you wish to include.
