which is the San Joaquin Genealogical Society and then once there, go up to Queries. There, You will find a link to "Melinda" Click on that and ask her (and Charlie, her husband) your question.Be bold enough to suggest the City Directories (they are not telephone books but hard bounded books published once a year since late 1800s). Tell Charlie and Melinda the specific or about specific years you think your relative was in Stockton.For a nominal fee, they will go down to Chavez library (main one for Stockton) and look up your relative in the City Directories.Why do I mention the City Directories?Because they include not only your relative's name but also the spouse or ...spouse and "widow of."
Charlie and Melinda always go that extra step in their researching for someone.Your money will be well spent.I know Charlie and Melinda personally....they are the ones if you are really focused in finding your relative in Stockton during those few years. P.S. Perhaps he had a nick name too???
