It seems like I just don't have enough irons in the fire...not only am I starting a new blog, but I'm also starting a new website! It's not quite ready for visitors, but I'll give you an idea of what it's about:

Have you ever wished you could find links to all the online city directories in one place? A place where they were listed by location and in date order? This is the purpose of the Online City, County, and Rural Directories Website. It is meant to be used as an aid to genealogists, historians, and other researchers.

There's a lot of work that needs to be done to this site, and with all the online databases available, it's likely this project will be a continuous work-in-progress!

My goal is to have a complete listing for city, county, rural, business, and other types of directories for the United States and Canada, and then go on to add directories for other countries. I also plan to have lists of resources, articles, and ideas of where to find offline city directories.

These links will include both free sites and subscription database websites.

Subscribe to this blog to get updates via your e-mail or your feed reader (Google Reader, Bloglines, etc.). I'll be announcing the opening of this website through the blog.


  1. Fabulous idea, Miriam! This will be a tremendous resource and quite a big undertaking. I wish you the very best.

  2. Wow! This is a huge undertaking Miriam. Thanks you! I'm certain it will be a phenomenal resource.

  3. You're welcome! Yes, I probably don't know what I've got myself into!
