Looking for Scottish Directories?

Internet Archive is a great resource, and best of all, it's free!! the directories are in PDF format and range from 1905-1910.

Happy Searching!


  1. The National Library of Scotland was the partner on this project and also offers them in easier to locate format at http://www.nls.uk/family-history/directories/post-office.

    The NLS will be offering an online index at some point, using the first three letters of each surname.

    There is already an index online for the Glasgow editions, pulled together by a University of Strathclyde student, Michael Tobias - for more, see http://scottishancestry.blogspot.com/2010/12/scottish-directories-project.html

    Brilliant resource!

  2. Thanks for the update, Chris! I agree they are a brilliant resource.

  3. Sorry, just twigged these are additional books - good find!
