This list is based on all Connecticut telephone books that I have seen and indexed. The period I am best acquainted with is the 1960s. During that period, the Greenwich telephone directory was published by the New York Telephone Company; all others were published by the Southern New England Telephone Company. I have also prepared a map of the coverage areas of each book.

City and business directories are available online from all over the U.S. and are what I consider another important set of information that can assist you in advancing your family history and genealogy research.

This activity of presenting links is a collaborative effort between The Ancestor Hunt and Miriam Robbins, who for years has made available the Online Historical Directories website, which presents links to directories of all types that are available online, including free collections as well as those available only via subscription. I wish to thank Miriam for her help in launching this category of records at The Ancestor Hunt.

So, what kinds of directories are available to the researcher?  Naturally city and business directories, but also telephone directories, and alumni, farm, lodge, rural, and social directories.

What can you find in these records? How about:

  • Full names, including middle names
  • Spouse name
  • Occupation
  • Widows, working women, and adult children at home.
  • Maps
  • Businesses (and index to advertisers).
  • Addresses and maps of churches, schools, funeral homes, cemeteries, post offices, courts, hospitals, benevolent associations, newspapers.
  • Whether a woman is a widow (including name of husband).
  • List of marriages and deaths of previous year.
  • Death date.
  • etc.

Here are a few good primers on the benefits of searching historical city and other directories:​

And here are various places where you can find other city directories online: 

Note: Some of the links listed below take you to a FamilySearch Collection of digital images. Near the bottom of the page under Film/Digital Notes is the name of each sub-collection. If there is a camera icon at the right of the name (in the Format column) then the collections’ images are browsable. If there is a camera with a key icon, it is only available at a Family History Center or affiliated library. If there is a film reel icon, then it is only available in microfilm format, not digital.

(Updated September 2021; recently added links are in BOLD)

Links to these free collections are presented initially with statewide collections, followed in alphabetical order by city or county. Generally, the publishing company is included in the reference to the collection, along with the collection title, and the date(s) of the directory:

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can i get a phone book?

The post office keeps undelivered telephone directories, so you can often pick up a phone book there. Phone companies often accidentally deliver multiple copies of phone directories. If you haven't set up your phone or Internet connection yet, ask your neighbors if they have extra phone books.

The yellow pages are telephone directories of businesses, organized by category rather than alphabetically by business name, in which advertising is sold. The directories were originally printed on yellow paper, as opposed to white pages for non-commercial listings. The traditional term "yellow pages" is now also applied to online directories of businesses.

In many countries, including Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and elsewhere, "Yellow Pages" (or any applicable local translations), as well as the "Walking Fingers" logo first introduced in the 1970s by the Bell System-era AT&T, are registered trademarks, though the owner varies from country to country, usually being held by the main national telephone company (or a subsidiary or spinoff thereof).[1][2] However, in the United States, neither the name nor the logo was registered as trademarks by AT&T, and they are freely used by several publishers. This can sometimes be confusing as YP (AT&T), Yellow Pages Directory Inc and yellow pages are all similar in nature. To distinguish one Yellow Pages from another more accurately, the US trademark Office recently granted on Feb. 02, 2021 a trade mark for the company Yellow Pages Directory Inc to become the "Official Yellow Pages Directory."

History[edit]

The name and concept of "yellow pages" came about in 1883, when a printer in Cheyenne, Wyoming, working on a regular telephone directory, ran out of white paper and used yellow paper instead.[3] In 1886, Reuben H. Donnelley created the first official Yellow Pages directory.[4][5]

Today, the expression yellow pages is used globally in both English-speaking and non-English speaking countries. In the United States, it refers to the category, while in some other countries it is a registered name and therefore a proper noun. The term Yellow Pages is not a registered name within the United States and is freely used by many companies. Telephone directories using the Internet domain name "yellowpages.cc" (where cc is the ccTLD) exist in 75 countries.[6] They are edited by many different phone companies and directory publishers, mostly independently.

A particular yellow pages is a print directory which provides an alphabetical listing of businesses within a specific geographical area (e.g. the Tampa Bay area, which are segregated under headings for similar types of businesses, such as plumbers). Traditionally these directories have been published by the local phone company, but there are numerous independent directory publishers. Some yellow pages publishers focus on a particular demographic (e.g. Christian yellow pages or business pages).

Yellow pages directories are usually published annually and distributed for free to all residences and businesses within a given coverage area. The majority of listings are plain and in small black text. The yellow-pages publishers profit by selling advertising space or listings under each heading. Advertising may be sold by a direct sales force or by approved agencies (CMR's). Available advertising space varies among publishers and ranges from bold names up to four color twin page ads ("double trucks").

In the United States, the predominant yellow pages are DEX One's DEX, the AT&T Real Yellow Pages, Yellowbook, and the Superpages.

Yellowbook Logo used in the United States

Business listings used for publication are obtained by several methods. Local phone companies that publish yellow pages directories rely on their own customer lists and include business listings that are provided by incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs).

Advertising in yellow pages directories requires payment in full prior to printing or may be billed monthly over the life of the contract, which is usually 12 months. Typically, sales representatives help customers to design their ads and provide a proof copy for review and approval.

Yellow pages' print usage is reported to be declining with both advertisers and shoppers increasingly turning to Internet search engines and online directories. According to a study by Knowledge Networks/SRI, in 2007, print yellow pages were referenced 13.4 billion times, while Internet yellow pages references increased to 3.8 billion, up from 2006's 3.3 billion online searches.[7] As a result, most yellow pages publishers have attempted to create online versions of their print directories. These online versions are referred to as IYP or Internet yellow pages. Independent ad agencies or Internet marketing consultants can assist business owners in determining sound opportunities for yellow pages advertising and provide objective information on usage, possession and preferences.

Archived yellow pages and telephone directories are important tools in local historical research and trademark litigation.[8]

Logo[edit]

Canadian yellow pages logo

The "Walking Fingers" logo was created by Henry Alexander,[9] a New England artist. After graduating from the Swain School of Design in New Bedford, Massachusetts, Alexander began a freelance career as an illustrator and commercial designer. He formed a long association with the New England Telephone Company lasting thirty-one years. In 1962, he designed the "walking fingers" logo and within a year it became the national trademark for their yellow pages.

AT&T, the creator and owner of the most famous three-fingered version of the "Walking Fingers" logo, never applied for a trademark on the logo. While they eventually received a trademark on a different version of the logo, the version with the three fingers was not considered by AT&T to be proprietary and they in fact allowed any telephone directory to use it.[10] Throughout the 1970s, many cities ran television ads showing a disembodied hand "walking" across an open copy of the Yellow Pages, with the slogan "Let Your Fingers Do the Walking."

The Bell System later applied for a trademark on the logo but had their trademark denied on the grounds that it "had become a generic indicator of the yellow pages without regard to any particular source."[10] Shortly thereafter, Bell began using a trademarkable logo with a lightbulb instead of the walking fingers, but returned to the walking fingers two years later.[11]

In some countries, the familiar "walking fingers" logo is not protected as a trademark and may be used by anyone. This logo is used in varying forms by almost every yellow pages publisher; however, there are companies that use it to imitate mainstream publishers. In Belgium, the Republic of Ireland, Israel and the Netherlands the directory, although using the yellow pages logo, is called "Golden Pages".[12][13]

Internet yellow pages[edit]

Online business directories are branded as IYP or Internet yellow pages. On a broader scale, they can be classified as vertical directories. There are consumer oriented and business oriented varieties. Providers of IYP offer online advertising.

According to several reports the search term "yellow pages" was in the top 5 highest revenue generator of all search terms in Google's AdWords program in 2010. Experian/Hitwise reported in January 2011 that the search term "yellow pages" was one of the top 50 search terms across all search engines and all search terms(millions of search terms). This made "yellow pages" one of the most searched for things on the Internet in 2011.

The Yellow Pages Association said in February 2011 that 75 percent of adults in the United States still used print yellow pages and that for every $1 in investment, businesses returned $15.[14]

IYP offers listings differently from standard search engines. Where search engines return results based on relevance to the true search term, IYP returns results based on a geographic area.[15]

IYP is classified as a local search directory which provides content with the added ability to refine the search to find the needed service. The search engine prioritizes local businesses in its results rather than the results being dominated by regional or national companies. All services offer paid advertising options which typically offer preferred placement on search results pages.

Environmental concerns[edit]

In later years, the yellow pages industry faced scrutiny from environmentalist groups who claim printed yellow pages are a wasteful resource, citing statistics that by 2011 nearly 70% of all Americans rarely or never used printed phone directories.[16] Other studies have found that a majority of consumers continue to use Yellow Pages.[citation needed] Approximately 58% of working U.S. adults said they use phone books at home, work or both, according to a 2013 survey by RingCentral that appeared in USA Today.[17]

The Product Stewardship Institute claims local governments spend $54 million a year to dispose of unwanted phone books and $9 million to recycle them.[18] Phone books use low grade glues and are therefore difficult to recycle, and they often clog recycling machinery.[citation needed] Conversely, publishers note that phone book directories are 100% recyclable and are made using soy-based and non-toxic inks, glues and dyes.[19]

In 2011, San Francisco became the first city in the United States to restrict yellow page distribution to people who opt in,[20] but was being sued in federal court by the Local Search Association on freedom of speech grounds.[21] According to the Sierra Club, 1.6 million phone books were distributed annually in San Francisco, producing 3600 tons of waste, $1 million in disposal costs, and 6180 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.[22] In 2013, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed, and the Mayor signed, an ordinance that repealed the Yellow Pages Distribution Pilot Program (Ordinance 130186).[23]

Also in 2011, Yellow Pages Association and the Association of Directory Publishers started the yellowpagesoptout.com Web site allowing anyone in the United States to choose not to receive directories. The site remains active in 2018.[14]

The 2009 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Municipal Solid Waste report classified directories as the smallest contributor of paper and paperboard products to the solid waste stream, representing only 0.3% – significantly less than all other paper product categories such as newspapers, magazines and books.[24] In 2010, the EPA stopped measuring directories separately from newspapers, indicating the minor impact of directories on municipal waste.[25]

Yellow Pages publishers' paper usage declined by nearly 60% between 2007–2012, and were projected to continue declining through 2013, according to the Pulp and Paper Products Council.[26] The EPA's 2011 Municipal Waste report showed that approximately 73% of phone directory, newspaper and mechanical papers were recycled.[27]

Decline of print directories[edit]

In September 2017, Yell, the publisher of Yellow Pages in the United Kingdom, announced that the business would be fully digitized from January 2019, ending the publication's 51-year run.[28] The last UK copies were posted out on 18 January 2019.[29]

The Irish publisher of the Golden Pages moved to an online-only model in 2017 after exiting Examinership.[30] The equivalent "Independent Directory" (similar to the UK's Thomson Local directories) produced by Independent News & Media ceased publication in 2009.[31]

Now discussing:

The following article was written by my good friend, William Dollarhide. Enjoy…

Dollarhide’s Genealogy Rule No. 42: If you took family group sheets to the last wedding you attended, you are probably an addicted genealogist.

The Internet has caused the death of many printed genealogical sources, including the annual printed city directories for most cities of America. Instead of printed directories each year, the same name lists are now published online – and there are many ways of accessing those name lists. The previous article, “Online Resources for Finding Living Relatives (Part 1 and Part 2),” identified many of the websites where white pages, yellow pages, and current city directories are found. But, the old city directories, those published before the Internet, and those still sitting in a library somewhere, are in many cases a long way away from being digitized and included on the Internet for research. There are exceptions – with Ancestry.com having posted many directories on their site. Miriam Robbins has an excellent site with links to many online directories. See: https://sites.google.com/site/onlinedirectorysite/

Old city directories are some of the most underused genealogical sources available. Yet, the old directories exist for virtually every community in America, and often to the earliest time of settlement of a community. Some of the privately published directories for a city date back over a hundred and fifty years, and some collections are nearly complete for every year in which a directory was published. Surprisingly, those that exist are quite easy to find. They are usually located in the public library serving a particular city.

When I first started in genealogy, I was living in Seattle, where I soon discovered the wonderful collection of city directories at the main Seattle Public Library. Their collection of city directories, with some gaps in the early years, dates back to 1877. (The city was founded in 1853). From about 1885 forward, the collection is complete for every year, with an annual city directory for Seattle and its environs. Each directory listed the name of a resident, an address, and sometimes more information, such as a person’s occupation. In some years, there was more than one directory from competing directory companies, and adding to the resources are Seattle telephone directories for over 60 years. The city directories provide an unmatched source for finding the exact place a person lived, and often an alternate source to identify residents for a particular time period. City directories can act as a substitute to the lost 1890 census, for example.

Virtually every city in America with a public library has a collection of city directories for that city. It was profitable for the directory companies to publish annual name lists until the population of a city exceeded one million people. After that, directories for the larger cities became regionalized into neighborhoods, suburbs, or downgraded to include just businesses or trade organizations. For example, New York City’s directories go back to the 1730s, and they are very complete through 1933, the last year a full every-name city directory was produced for Manhattan. The New York Public Library has an outstanding collection of the old city directories for all five boroughs of New York City. Similarly, Boston’s city directories at the Boston Public Library begin with directories from the 1720s.

There have been many different directory publishers, but the largest publisher of old city directories was the R. L. Polk Company, producing directories for every major city in the U.S. since 1870. The company still exists, but its business is now information services related to the automotive industry (CARFAX is a Polk operation). During the 1970s, 1980s, and into the 1990s, the R. L. Polk Company had offices in the 50 largest cities of America, where a free library of the current city directories for that city area could be visited in person. Before the Internet, the Polk directories were the primary People-Finder service in America. Today, however, the older city directories are almost exclusively limited to public libraries, college libraries, and archives nearest to the city in question.

The Cross-Street Index
A feature found in most twentieth-century city directories is a cross-street index. The main listing of names in the book is an alphabetical listing by the names of the residents. But in the back of the book is an index according to the address of the houses, apartments, or businesses —a street index, followed by the house number and names of residents at that address. Using this feature, a city directory can be used to find the names of people living next door to a relative, providing more resources for finding information about people. People living next door ten years ago, for example, may still live there, and may still remember your relatives. This is a technique that can be used to find lost relatives.

The cross-street index is also a resource to find people whose names may have changed. For example, say a woman living alone at a particular address in 1938 disappears in the 1939 directory. But, by going to the 1939 cross-street address listing for the same address, it may be discovered that the woman remarried, is still living in the same house, and you find the new husband’s name!

Genealogy in City Directories
Since the information in city directories is far more revealing than just a name and address, a typical city directory can be a genealogical gold mine. Here is an example I found in a city directory for the town of Whatcom (now Bellingham), Washington for the year 1893:

  • Clancy, Annie (wid Patrick), res bet R R tracks nr B B & E round house.
  • Clancy, John, lab B B I Co mill
  • Clancy, Mary, clk Montague & Mchugh, bds Mrs Annie Clancy
  • Clancy, Michael, lab B B I Co mill
  • Clancy, Wm., lab B B I Co mill

The five entries above read like a family group sheet! First, the directory informs us that Annie Clancy was a widow, and her deceased husband’s name was Patrick Clancy. The Mary Clancy boarding with Annie Clancy appears to be a daughter, and the three men who all work at the same place look like sons of Annie as well.

Another later example from a 1955 city directory for Waterbury, Connecticut shows some interesting entries for the name Culotta:

  • Culotta, Augustine r 29 Crescent
  • Culotta, Charles G slsman r 29 Crescent
  • Culotta, John died June 6 1954 age 65
  • Culotta, Joseph P slsman r 29 Crescent
  • Culotta, Mariano h 42 Cooke
  • Culotta, Mary M wid John h 29 Crescent
  • Culotta, Rose M slswoman Hartford r 29 Crescent
  • Culotta, Thomas C student r 29 Crescent

The Waterbury entries tell us quite a bit about this family. First, note that an age and exact date of death for John Culotta is given, and that his widow was Mary M. Culotta, who owned a house at 29 Crescent Street in Waterbury. Also living at that address were Augustine; Charles and Joseph P. Culotta, both salesmen; Rose Culotta, a saleswoman working in Hartford; and Thomas, a student; all of whom appear to be children of John and Mary Culotta. The “r” indicates a residence/renter; while an “h” indicates a homeowner. All of the people named Culotta in 1955 in Waterbury, Connecticut lived in the same house except Mariano Culotta, who owned a house at 42 Cooke Street. But with no other people with that name in Waterbury, one could guess that Mariano was probably related to the others.

The above example directory entries demonstrate that genealogy can be found in city directories, and sometimes a surprising amount of detail will be revealed. Unlike a phone book, a city directory has more details about a person. These examples are not unique. Although I selected these examples because of the extra details they revealed, they are still fairly typical of virtually every city directory that has been published for cities and towns across the country. In some of the directories, the information may be limited to just a name, but in most of them, more details are given. Very possible items may include an age, occupation, home ownership, and names of employers.

Old City Directories on Microfilm
City directories for the 50 largest cities in America, most dating back before 1860, have been collected together and microfilmed. The collection was done by Research Publications, Inc., New Haven, CT, and they are available for sale to the public. The Family History Library in Salt Lake City has this complete collection, and a particular city and directory year can be found by searching for that city in the FHL catalog. Use the FHL’s website at familysearch.org and use the keyword “city directories — (name of city)” to search for a particular city directory.

Old City Directories in Libraries
You can find a website online for just about any library in the world – go to www.worldcat.org/ a portal to the collections and services of more than 10,000 libraries worldwide. At a library’s website, a search of their online catalog may be possible, and this is the place to determine what city directories that library may hold. If the information can not be learned online, a letter or email to a reference librarian in the public library for the city of interest should tell you if city directories exist for certain years. If you write, include a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope (SASE). Another way to get an address, go to your own library and ask to see the American Library Directory, published by the R. R. Bowker Co., New York. Every library in America has this directory, which lists the addresses, email, and phone numbers for all American libraries, whether public, private, special collections, college, or archives.

Although most libraries will not conduct any research for you, they should at least respond with the period of time covered by the directories. If the library will not look in a particular city directory for a name, then contact a local genealogical society and see if a volunteer is available to go to the library and do some looking for you. Most genealogical societies will do this, and there is usually a small donation to the society expected. American genealogical societies are listed in detail in The Genealogist’s Address Book, 6th Edition, by Elizabeth Petty Bentley (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc.).

Old City Directories on the Internet
www.Ancestry.com and www.WorldVitalRecords.com are the two main Internet services that are involved in acquiring databases of digitized directories. But there are many more smaller one-city or one-county directories found at the many county genealogy sites on the Internet. Rather than a direct Google search for the old directories, it may be easier to find one by first finding a website related to one county of the U.S. – the Google keywords to do this are USGenWeb (name of county) (state) or RootsWeb (name of county) (state). There is a USGenWeb or RootsWeb site for virtually every county in the U.S. If you can reach a home page for a local website of interest, you should be able to search for online databases available at that site. This is the place to learn if any old directories have been transcribed, digitized, or perhaps find those with scanned images online. Most of the city directories online, however, are merely extracts of the name lists from the old directories, usually done by volunteers of a local genealogical society.

In the previous article, “Peculiarities of the First Federal Censuses,” we mentioned Clement Biddle, the US Marshal for Pennsylvania in 1790, who was famous for borrowing the census name lists from Philadelphia and turning them into a privately published city directory in 1791. A complete facsimile of that early directory is online. Click here for a look at Clement Biddle’s 1791 Philadelphia Directory. This is fairly typical of the earliest city directories for American cities, and in most cases, the earliest historical documents online are full color images of the originals.
