Hamilton County, Ohio Historical Directories

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


The Historic Pittsburgh City Directory Collection can be searched across all its directories here.

Links to directories at New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) 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 keyword, go to the Digital Archive & Library search engine on this page (it is the second search box).  For more information on how to access subscription websites, read Number 5 on my FAQs page.

Links to city directories at the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County (PLCH) are to a page of links that will lead you to the online images, rather than directly to the images themselves.
