Directories are alphabetical lists of heads of households and addresses. Some directories also give the wife's name and the family's address. Directories can help you locate a family, especially when the family does not appear in the censuses. Many city and county directories from the 1840s to the present are available. For example, the Family History Library has directories for:

Montréal

1866–1867 FHL film 928171 item 1
1888–1889 FHL film 934815
1915–1916 FHL film 928172 items 1–2

City of Québec

FHL film 928003 item 2.
Includes surrounding cities and counties.
1885 FHL film 1698149 item 10

The Family History Library also has:

Not available at Family History Centers.) The set includes directories for a number of cities and counties in the province of Québec.
