      Thanks so much for the link Edmund and Brian!

      There are Dundee directories on this site from about 1830 to 191x.
      They seems to list professional people and business/shop owners,
      but not all residents, but most list by name, and then by street.
      You can download in various versions - I suggest a searchable one.

      I did find a relative who was a police sergeant, and I used
      addresses from the census and checked out the "neighbors"
      of the other branches of the family.

      Now does anyone know where there is posted older maps,
      so I can see how the streets run?
