City Directory Holdings at the Schenectady County Public Library

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

City directories were not published between 1968 and 2006; there were some Colonie-Schenectady directories, such as 1980 and 1984. We do have telephone books from 1961 and cross reference directories from 1967, 1971-date.

We also have city directories for the following areas (some runs are incomplete):

Amsterdam1920-1984 (note that Amsterdam's first directory was included in the 1867-8 Schenectady directory)

Gloversville/Johnstown1917-1960, 1966, 1971
