Why are they an important tool in family history research?
This project was begun to assist those searching for elusive ancestors in largely un-indexed British Isles census returns 1841-1911 (every 10 years).
In census research, it is very important to know the street address, as the returns were recorded on a house-by- house , street-by-street basis and not alphabetically by personal names. English, Scottish and Welsh returns have been released on full public access from 1841- 1891 and Irish returns for 1901 and 1911. For the 1901 English and Welsh returns, restricted access rules apply.
Unlike the census, Post Office and Commercial Directories usually list people in alphabetical order by surname on a town-by-town, city-by-city and profession-by profession basis. They are also a census substitute where returns are lost, not on public access or in periods between census surveys.
These microfiche bring this information into the hands of amateur genealogists at a fraction of the cost of hiring a professional researcher to spend many hours searching un-indexed census returns. Some of these directories are very rare and by microfiching them, they are available to all at reasonable prices.
Nick Vine Hall began the project in 1991 and there are over 500 volumes in the series. !92 have maps. Unfortunately all the directories were not completed ( on microfiche) before his death in October 2006. These fiche are the remainder of his stock so orders will be processed on first come first serve basis.Later they can be ordered through the AIGS (Australian Institute of Genealogical Studies) in Blackburn, Vic. IF you cannot find the period you want please direct your inquiries (availablitity /price) to the AIGS directly.
The whole series comprises approximately 20 million names. ( Valid July 07)
