Submitting City Directories
Does your local library, society, or archives carry city directories?  Or, do you know of an online directory?  You may find a directory that is not available anywhere else in the world.  That one directory may help solve another researcher's problem.  Let us add it to our database!

Submitting directories is easy.  All we need is the locality, specific year, repository, and call number or URL.

4 Easy Steps:

  1. Download the extraction form and example.  Download in 3 different formats:
    Download WordPerfect format Download example
    Download Word format Download example
    Download Rich Text format Download example
  2. Using your word processor, complete the extraction form.  You will identify the following information:

    a. Locality: This could be a city/town/township, county, state, or region.  For example: Seattle, King, Washington.  NOTE: One directory may contain many localities.  The Provo, Utah directory for 1930 also includes several communities in the area.  Make sure you identify these additional localities.

    b. Specific Year(s): Generally, this is one year, or a directory that covers two years.  For example: 1897 OR 1897/98.

    c. Repository: This is the library or archive in which the directory is located.  For example: Allen County Public Library OR Online.

    d. Call Number: For example: Fiche E 154.5 .C57x OR

  4. Earn cash!  We receive voluminous requests to photocopy a certain page from a city directory.  While we have researchers in many areas throughout the country, we can't cover every repository.  We need your help.  When we receive a request for a photocopy that we can't fulfill, we'd like to employ your services.  If you're interested in participating at the repository for which you submitted information, please contact us at
