Directories are one of the most effective ways of tracing members of a family, especially tradesmen, is through searching directories. Many small businesses needed to ensure the public was aware of their activity and one of the better ways to do this in an age before media dominated was via a directory. The value of directories as a research tool is enhanced when no census material is available.

High quality scanned images of the whole of the each original book. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
