History[edit | edit source]
- Directories were published to help government agencies, businesses, churches and schools track people in a community.
- People who had jobs outside the home, who were over the age of 18 years along with their occupation, place of residence and home ownership were listed from the earliest directories.
- During the wars it was often noted if individuals were on active service.
- After WW II women who stayed at home were added to the directory along with the name of their spouse. At this time they also listed the name of the deceased spouse of a widow for a few years.
- Directories continued to be printed until 2000 when the federal government introduced stricter privacy legislation.
