Schenectady County Public Library City Directory Holdings

The first Schenectady city directories were dated 1841-42 and 1857-58. SCPL has those and a continuous run from 1861 to 1968 except for these missing volumes:

1903, 1917, 1922, 1932, 1934, 1944, 1946, 1948, 1950, 1967.

The only city directories published since 1968 are 1980 and 1984. We do have telephone books from 1961 and cross reference directories from 1967, 1971-date.

We are gradually making these directories searchable on our site.

We also have city directories for the following areas:
(Runs are not complete)

Albany
1940-date
Amsterdam
1920-1984 (note that Amsterdam's first directory was included in the 1867-8 Schenectady directory)
Colonie/Bethlehem/Guilderland
1956-1978
Colonie
1979-date (1980-84 were combined with Schenectady)
Gloversville/Johnstown
1917-1960, 1966, 1971
Saratoga Springs
1942-1990
Troy

The Schenectady County Historical Society and the New York State Library also have collections of city directories which may include those missing volumes.
