Directories are alphabetical lists of names and addresses. These often list all the adult residents or tradesmen of a city or area. In the twentieth century there are directories of those having telephones. Telephone directories of local residents and businesses can be useful for genealogical research. These are published periodically and may include an individual’s name, address, and occupation. Telephone directories may include addresses of churches, cemeteries, civil registration offices, and other locations of value to the genealogist.
The Family History Library has a few directories for Greece:
- A directory of people from the island of Kythira, including many persons from there who moved to other places
- A 1994 telephone directory of Athens-Piraeus (Athinai-Peiraieus)
- Telephone directories from 1973–1975 for the counties of Attikis, Ahaias, Kefallinias, and Zakynthou;, the island of Crete; the Aegean Islands; and the regions of Peloponnesus and Thessaly
Directories are listed in the Place section of the FamilySearch Catalog under:
