History[edit | edit source]

Directories are alphabetical lists of names and addresses. These often list all the adult residents of a city or an area. They are similar to modern telephone books. Beside addresses and occupations, they may also give locations of streets and voting districts which will help you locate other records.

Directories of heads of households have been published for major cities in Utah. Some directories cover several cities.
