About this Collection

This collection includes Newark city directories (lists of people in Newark). City directories allow you to look up the name of a Newark resident. They list the resident's name, address, and often list their job!

NOT ALL THESE DIRECTORIES ARE SEARCHABLE. If you don't find a name, browse.

These directories go to 1957. The last city directory 1964 is protected by copyright and may be viewed only inside the library. After 1964 we have some phonebooks and other materials at the library.

City directories do not exist for some years. Especially after 1940, directories were not published every year.
