The image number returned by the search engine is sometimes off by one, so, if you cannot find a match on the suggested image, please check the previous or subsequent image. Also, please notify me at logan@genealogyindexer.org if you discover such an error, and include the incorrectly-returned image number. Thank you.

Hi Logan,
The page for Grundfest in the 1909 Warsaw Address and Business directory is off by one. It should be the image before. (Of course, now I don't have it open and don't know the number.). I will write it down and send it in the next post. The list of occupations is very helpful, but a list of abbreviations would be great, too. (Can usually figure them out, but not always. What would be terrific is to have the headings under which various people are listed in the Russian medical directories. Sometimes it's several pages before. Sorry, I know this would be a lot of work.

Thanks for notifying me, Sharon. I will try to fix this error, which does not affect the entire directory (I try to check for such errors, but it's hard to catch them all).

As for a list of occupation abbreviations, I'd be happy to post it if someone else would create it.

Transcribing headings would require a lot of manual labor. If someone wants to do it, I can explain what format I would need to integrate the headings into search results, but I do not plan to do the transcription myself.

HI;
RE: 1908 Warsaw Address and Business Directory, image 588 {d214} notes
Source: University of Warsaw Digital Library

My family name is NORFLUS-NURFLUS, and the page it is supposed to be listed on is 588.
However, it is listed on page 587.
588 are the "O's"

Can it be corrected?

Thank you.

Does anyone know whether there's a similar resource for other cities? I'm mainly looking at Krakow.
