Directories

The New Rochelle Library has a number of city directories and yearbooks available to the researcher. However, for those who can't visit the library in person, Pat Connors has kindly shared with us some photocopies of pages of city directories which she has in her possession. These pages are from the 1901, 1903, 1905, 1910, and 1915 city directories and cover mainly the SMITH surname as well as a few other surnames found on the same pages.

Polk's New Rochelle (Westchester County, N.Y.) City Directory [New York City: R.L. Polk Co.] Microfilmed copy for 1936 available at the New York Public Library.

Also see the City Directories page on this Westchester Site.
