This is interesting - if you have open in front of you two street
directories, and on the screen Google Maps or similar, and they all offer
the same name for the same street, you have just used multiple sources to
find and confirm a fact.

It could be argued that this is independent  research, the confirmed fact (
i.e the name of a street or feature) is yours and you can put it where you

jim (who lives in a street in a city, but can not tell what they are for
fear of prosecution because he found the info in a street directory)
