Dear Ms. Tannenbaum,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
In addition to the Library of Congress (LOC) Manuscript Division’s suggestion, we also suggest that you contact the Meridian-Lauderdale County Public Library or the Lauderdale County Archives in Meridian, Mississippi for additional assistance.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
I have looked in a number of places and was not able to find the phone books for Meridian, MS for the dates 1907-1915. Trying to find when he moved to Meridian from Cuba, AL. I believe that when he landed on Ellis Island, he went to Cuba, AL. There are some other Dumont or Diament families located there. I do not know why any of these people immigrated to AL. That would be very interesting to find out why they ended in AL.
I am also looking for the dates that my father opened his store Dumont Retail in Meridian, MS. I was trying to find property tax records for the dates of 1906-1915 but wasn't able to find anything. Probably not searching correctly.
Any help with these answers would be fantastic!
