From Ancestry.com. U.S. City Directories, 1821-1989 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations, Inc., 2011 I know that in 1870 my 4th great grandfather Hugh Sellars was living or at least running a variety store at 311 Washington Ave, Albany City, New York State, USA.
According to the same U.S. City Directories he had been there since at least 1864 and stayed there until at least 1872. However, while I have found him in the 1865 New York State Census, I have not been able to locate him in the 1870 Federal Census.
Using my subscription to Ancestry.com, or any other means, is it possible to determine which image(s) from the 1870 Federal Census I should be trying to look at?
My problem seems to be the opposite of that in How to find address of building in New York State censuses (1870, St Lawrence, USA)?
