Historical Directories of England and Wales

Directories are a wonderful primary source of information for the genealogist and family history enthusiats alike. Directories can help you locate people in your family tree in a particular place and time aiding in finding more about your ancestors. The directories can be from an institution, society family associations, schools, professions and telephone directories to name a few. The Historical Directories of England and Wales contains digitized directories from England and Wales covering the time period between 1749 and 1910. This site is searchable by location, time period or by key words. I have found that the keyword search is more efficient if you are looking for a particular person. If you are interested in researching at this site, please click here to go to the site. When you arrive at the site, I would suggest that you view the brief tutorial on how to search the database. Enjoy!
