Directories are alphabetical lists of names and addresses. These often list all the adult residents or tradesmen of a city or area. For the twentieth century, there are directories of everyone who had a telephone.

The most helpful directories for genealogical research are city directories of local residents and businesses. These are generally published annually and may include an individual's name, address, occupation, spouse's name, and other helpful facts. An individual's address can be very helpful when searching records from a large city with several parishes. Directories sometimes have city maps and may include addresses of churches, cemeteries, civil registration offices, and other locations of value to the genealogist.

The Family History Library has some Swedish directories. They are listed in the catalog under:

SWEDEN, [COUNTY] - DIRECTORIES

SWEDEN, [COUNTY], [CITY] - DIRECTORIES

Directories that list only certain types of tradesmen or businesses are listed under:

SWEDEN, [COUNTY] - DIRECTORIES

SWEDEN, [COUNTY] - OCCUPATIONS
