Dear Ms. Villanueva,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Most cities and counties have yearly directories for residents which can be searched by name. We suggest you consult the FamilySearch Research wiki on New York Directories for these resources. You may wish to search Ancestry.com for these directories as well. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, check for access at your local library as many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for their patrons.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
