Los Angeles County, California Online Historical Directories



Expand your research by checking out the California Online Historical Newspapers here.


Links to directories at Ancestry are to the images themselves, which are browsable. Non-subscribers will not be able to view these. Non-subscribers can, however, use the search engine and see a listing of possible results (but no images or further details). To search by name, directory, year, or keyword, go to Ancestry's U.S. City Directories search engine. For more information on how to access subscription websites, read Number 5 on my FAQs page.

Links to directories at GenealogyToday are to the search engine for that particular directory, which is searchable without a subscription. Non-subscribers can use the search engine and see a listing of possible results (but no images or further details). For more information on how to access subscription websites, read Number 5 on my FAQs page.

Links to directories at VitalSearch have two categories, free and premium. Premium members apparently have access to directories that can be searched or browsed (I'm not certain of this, as I do not have a Premium membership). Free users must create a guest pass that allows them to browse only (not search) through the images. These directory pages have a corresponding list of unidentified page numbers (links to these appear with the directory links below). Use the range of these numbers to determine at what point approximately your ancestor's name might appear (surnames beginning with B would appear on pages near the beginning of the directory, while those beginning with M would appear on pages near the middle of the directory, etc.). Use previous or following page numbers to browse through the book. This is a slow, painstaking task, in my opinion, but may yield useful results if this is the only way you can access city directories for this time period.

Los Angeles Street Directories are searchable by street name or resident name. The directories are listed alphabetically by street name, block by block, with residents' names listed in order by address for each block. If your ancestor had a surname that was also a Los Angeles street name, be prepared to browse through many pages of hits.
