Can someone explain to me how to use footnote city directories. There  
seem to be several different directories filmed together - with no  
indication as to the publishers of the various directories, for  
example in 1850 in NY City :

p. 246 is Hortsman - Houston followed by
p.246 US Mercantile Union Directory
p.246  is Hogan - Holl
p. 247 is Printers
P.247 Liberty Court
p.247 in Houston to Howell
p.248 U. S. Mercantile Union Directory
p.248  Holland - Holmes
p.248 Printers
p. 248 U.S. Mercantile etc
p249 How- Hoy

The two alphabetical listings are not the same. There are only 5 John  
Hopper entries on p. 246,  and 7 John Hopper entries on p.250 (4  
identical, 1 slightly different and two new).
