Schenectady, New York City Directory: 1841-2

Name Listing: A to F

This list contains the personal and business entries from the 1841 Schenectady city directory. Each address is linked to the street listing, so you may go directly from a name to view a list of neighbors, and back again.

In order to minimize the confusion caused by variant spellings and spacing, the normal sorting order has been modified. Last names are filed without regard to case, spacing or punctuation, Mac and Mc are filed together as Mac, and names beginning with St. are under Saint. Entries with no first name are placed at the beginning of the listing for their last name.
