City Directory Search

Classification: Query

I am looking for someone to check the Rochester City Directories for me. The ones on the Monroe County Library System/RPL page only go to 1930. The copies on Ancestry's site post-1930 start in 1936. It appears the person I am interested in tracing got married around 1935, so a 1936 directory search does not help (I checked).

I am wondering if anyone can check the city directory from 1930 to 1935. I am looking to see if Dorothy Stephens (1907-date of death unknown) appears in the Rochester CD before 1935. Dorothy was born in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. It would appear she married Ferdinand John (or F. John) Powell around 1935.

I have no evidence for Powell visiting Canada before 1956, so I think it likely he met Dorothy in Rochester. I am trying to confirm that. I also would like to narrow the window of marriage so I can request the marriage record.

Any assistance you can provide is appreciated.
