The Universal Directory of Great Britain - 1791 The Universal Directory of Great Britain - 1791

Ref: 1134bham
ISBN:

Five huge volumes comprising the earliest directory for Great Britain, and one which is probably the most important directory for genealogists and historians that we have released on CD. For towns and villages the descriptions of the places are excellent, with details of their facilities, etc, and includes those residents with trades (even those such as farmers, hay-binders, labourers, bakers, shop keepers, etc.) and their addresses.

Although titled "Great Britain", this directory covers places in England and Wales. Volume 1 of the five is devoted to London, volumes 2 to 4 cover the places in the England and Wales in alphabetical order, and vol. 5 contains a number of the subsequent amendments and additions published in the next few years.

"The Universal British Directory of Trade, Commerce, and Manufacture, comprehending Lists of the Inhabitants of London, Westminster, and Borough of Southwark; and of all the Cities, Towns, and principal Villages, in England and Wales; with the Mails, and other Coaches, stage-wagons, Hoys, Packets, and Trading Vessels.

1862 Corporation Directory of Birmingham and its Environs 1862 Corporation Directory of Birmingham and its Environs

Ref: 0689
ISBN:

Published by William Cornish in 1862. containing 808 pages. The areas covered are Birmingham, Edgbaston, Aston, Erdington, Moseley, Gravelly Hill, Handsworth, Harborne, King's Heath, Nechells, Perry Barr, Selly, Saltley, Small Heath, Smethwick, Ward End and Witton.

It contains an alphabetical list of people in the area along with their occupation and address plus a classified trades directory. These directories are not the same,however, there are people who are in one but not the other.

The really juicy part is the numerical directory. This is an alphabetical list of streets with lists of virtually every head of household. Not *every* house number is listed (mainly due to the fact that the family may have been out, or they may have doubted the motives of the canvasser) but the vast majority are there.

The date of the directory is important as it makes it an ideal index and searching aid for the 1861 census. You can simply look up the name of your ancestor,in the directory, get the address and *then* go to the street indexes of the census, a major time saver!

The Directory was kindly loaned to the Project by Sandwell Record Office.

Kelly's Directory of Birmingham 1940 Kelly's Directory of Birmingham 1940

Ref: 0624
ISBN:

A huge directory covering the whole of Birmingham in 1940.

One of the great advantages of a "late" directory such as this is that it is so easy to trace heads of household either by name or street address. (Each street, and every numbered house is there, together with the head of household and their occupation). Don't think of it as being just a 1940 resource. You will find all branches of your family and their addresses, and then go look at those same addresses in all earlier resources. That's the kind of information that will pull down those brick walls in your earlier research.
