UK Historical Directories Links

Ancestry has a great article here about using its newly-updated UK City and County Directories, 1600-1900s. Now, you don't have to have a subscription to Ancestry to read the article, but of course, you do have to have one of the following subscriptions to access this database: a subscription to (available in the United Kingdom) OR a World Deluxe Membership if you have an,, or some such other national Ancestry subscription. Of course, you can try the World Subscription for two weeks; just make sure you write down the phone number and call them to cancel in plenty of time (think of time zone differences and business hours).

I'm going to do something a little bit differently here. I'm going to share with you some of my trade secrets! ;-) As you have probably guessed, I am collecting a huge list of bookmarks of historical directories at both free and subscription websites, and as you probably can tell, it does take a great deal of time to get all those links added to my website. So here's a little freebie for you: I'm going to share my UK historical directories bookmarks with you, so you don't have to wait until they get on the UK pages! Shhh! This is just for you loyal readers who regularly visit this blog or have subscribed to it through e-mail or your favorite RSS reader.
Happy Hunting!
