The next phase of my search and research to understand the life and genealogy of ggg-grandfather Leo Pariza is my search for City Directories.
Per Kory L. Meyerink in his article “Effective Use of City Directories”
“City directories are your window to the life, society, conditions, sources, and, most of all, the residents of the cities of America. They provide an amazing amount of detail which may just help you find the key information you are seeking. Whether your family members were dirt poor immigrants trying to scratch out a living in a teaming metropolis, second or third generation city dwellers “moving on up” the social ladder and finding increasing success with the multiple opportunities of the city, or if they were the movers and shakers who made decisions that affected the lives of hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of city residents, city directories will help you find and document them.”
Make sure that you note that ggg-grandfather Leo’s surname changes from Parasaya to Pariza between the City Directories of 1905 and 1907.
Here are the three pages from the subsequent City Directories, as downloaded from Ancestry.com.
