Bresser’s City Directory Images Now Available

Great news! You can now access state-wide coverage for high-quality Bresser’s city directory images for the entire state of Michigan directly from EDR. Bresser’s Cross-Index Directory Company began publishing directories in the 1940s in sections of Michigan and expanded their geographic coverage in broader areas of the state in the 1970s. Their geographic coverage also includes small portions of south Florida, Indiana and Wisconsin which we will include in our coverage offerings.

This expanded coverage for our city directory image reports is just the latest in a continued commitment to bringing you the best and most thorough city directory research in the industry through the City Directory Super Library. And, as with all our city directory images, our agreement with Bresser’s allows you to reuse the images in your Phase I ESA Report.

With our City Directory Image report, you gain direct access to the original source just as if you were looking at it in a library, except you don’t have to search for the correct books and pages. Talk about a time saver!

How do we bring Bresser’s to you?

When you place your order for a city directory in areas covered by this collection, one of our highly-trained mobile research associates will look up your target property’s address in the criss cross books. EDR’s research associate will then use our proprietary scanning process to capture the information in the book directly from the pages pertaining to your target property. Watch a video about this process here. EDR strives to include data for your target property and surrounding addresses, at approximate five year intervals. We also make sure to include address and street name changes whenever possible. Be sure to note any special requests or additional information you have when you place your order to ensure the most accurate search. You may also request to have a city directory abstract instead of images, if you prefer.

Your completed city directory research report is compiled, emailed to you, and is also stored on a secure EDR order status page, accessible when you login.
