The State Library has a large collection of city/town directories and voting lists, including the first Boston directory of 1789. There is a large collection of late 18th and early 19th century Massachusetts newspapers and a large collection of maps and atlases, which includes coverage for most Massachusetts communities. There are lists available on the website of city/town directories, voting lists, and newspapers in the collection of the State Library.

The Archdiocese of Boston

The Archdiocese maintains a policy that permits public access to most records created prior to 1920. Sections of the website explain location and hours of operation, an overview of the collection, and historical and genealogical resources available through the Archdiocese. The genealogical resources section discusses both information likely to be found or not found in Archdiocese records.

Unfortunately many states, including Missouri, do not have a Soundex index for the 1930 census. We are working on finding aids for St. Louis City & County listings and will provide Library users with other means of access as they become available.
