No Years On Ancestry.com's Directories and Listing the Dead

The image below is part of the 1956 directory for the Monmouth, Illinois which is part of the U.S. City Directories (Beta) at Ancestry.com.


As of the time this post was written (and published) there were directories in the U.S. City Directories (Beta) at Ancestry.com that had no apparent associated "residence year." These entries were listed without a year on the results--without a year. 


Just something to keep in mind when using this database U.S. City Directories (Beta) at Ancestry.com. We'll post an update if necessary.

And note that John R. Neill is listed in the directory index, even though he's deceased. Actually when this directory was published he had been dead twenty years. Sometimes the dead are listed.
