City and county directories list the names and addresses of the local inhabitants, and they can also provide a picture of the community where our ancestors lived. Like current directories, historical listings show a resident’s name and address and may also contain occupation, spouse’s name, and sometimes children’s names.  Many directories also have information on cemeteries, newspapers, churches, schools, “secret societies,” maps, and more. They can provide background material to help us see our ancestors in the context of their community. See examples of the variety of information that is contained in city and county directories and learn where you can find these value-packed volumes.
