Business Directories and Registers

Genealogists search many records to find information on their ancestors. Because they are not as easily accessible, business directories and registers are often overlooked. Google Books has made it easier to locate these records.  The following information on lawyers comes from  Lawyers' Record and Official Register of the United States, 1872.
