In Using the Social Register:

            The quickest way to find a name is to look for it first in the Locater, which indicates its exact place, either in your own or one of the twenty other Social Registers.

            The name may be in your own Social Register and yet escape your attention, if grouped out of alphabetical order, under the family name.

            A subscriber to the Locater may obtain a transcript of the desired entry in any other Social Register by telephoning or writing to the Association.

            If the name you are seeking has escaped your memory try to think of the maiden name.  Reference to the Married Maidens will then indicate the present name.

            Consult Dilatory Domiciles for most recent changes.

Dilatory Domiciles And Locater Insure Accuracy

 

            Social Registers of each city are issued in November and their accuracy is maintained throughout the year by means of Dilatory Domiciles in December, January, February and April; and by the Summer Social Register in July, with country and foreign addresses of the cities combined.

            They record the full names and addresses of members of prominent families grouped together, the clubs to which they belong, and the marriage and death of each person as it may occur.

 

Names of Juniors, Misses 12 to 17 & Msrs 14 to 20, appear under the names of older members of their families.

            The Locater cataloguing in one alphabetical order every name in all the Social Registers with the family’s head under which it may be found and the city in which the name appears is essential, owing to the many inter-marriages among families in the various cities and constant changes from one city to another.  Reference to the Locater shows at once under what city to look for any desired name and there all required information may be gleaned.

            The names of Married Maidens who have married into families of other cities appear among the Married Maidens of their former city with their present married name and the city of their residence in italics.

            The subscription is $5.00 per annum for each city.

            A subscription of $35.00 will include all the issues for San Francisco & Oakland, New York, Washington, Philadelphia, Chicago, Boston, Providence, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Cleveland & Cincinnati & Dayton, St. Paul & Minneapolis, Seattle & Portland, Southern California, Baltimore, Buffalo, Detroit, New Orleans and Southern Cities from Richmond to Atlanta, and the Locater.

            For $7.50 the Locater is included with the year’s subscription for any one city.

 

            To insure the finding of a name in the Social Register look for it first in the Locater.
