Find directories here by selecting from drop-down menus and/or entering your own keywords. You can find out which directories we hold for a particular location during a particular decade, for example.
Find by keywords
Select an option from each drop-down menu or leave on the default setting of ‘All’.
The key name menu refers to the publisher, owner or printer associated with a directory at the time of its original compilation. Kelly's Directories, for example, have the key name ‘Kelly’. If in doubt about the key name, leave as ‘All’.
You can also enter your own keywords, if you wish. See our Technical FAQ's for advice on entering keywords and using advanced retrieval methods.
Only select the Fuzzy option if you want to retrieve similar sounding words. Again, see our Technical FAQ's for more information.
