Links to directories at Fold3 are to the images themselves, which are browsable.
  Non-subscribers will not be able to view these. Non-subscribers can, however, use the search engine and see a listing of possible results (but no images or further details).  To search by name, directory, year, or keyword, go to Fold3's Browse page, choose News and Town Records, then City Directories or Misc City Directories.  Choose the state, city, and year. At any time, use the search engine at the bottom of the page to search the entire collection, the state, the city, or just that year's directory. For more information on how to access subscription websites, read Number 5 on my FAQs page.
