About Directories Search

Start finding your ancestors now

Our collection covers over 400 books from more than 48 regions, including many UK counties as well as America and Australia.

Directories are a useful insight into the lives of our ancestors, and cover a wider range of years than the current census records available. As well as providing details of your ancestor's occupation, they can also provide addresses, historical maps and information on the area they lived in.

Unlimited access to various post office, trade, street, court and commercial directories, with original images. Directories can be searched by name or browsed with the aid of bookmarks.
