BOOK - Directory of the County of Hastings 1879 - 1880
By The Intelligencer
Originally published by The Intelligencer, Belleville, Ontario 1879
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2006
Gazetteers and directories provide real insights into a community and are of significant value to family history researchers. Directories place a person at a specific location at a specific time. Additionally there are other details available about the person, such as occupation and address, as well as details about the community and neighbors. Additionally, this book provides the reader with a twenty page history of Hastings County, an overview of settlement, institutions, courts, and a variety of lists including members of local, provincial and federal government in 1879-1880.
The book is organized by municipality / township, with each householder and business recorded alphabetically by surname or business name.
There are descriptive sketches of each municipality before the listing of the persons in the place. Some of the sketches are lengthy... for example, Belleville's sketch is several pages.
Two examples of listings of individual residents. The first is an example of a rural listing in Wicklow Township. The second is an urban listing in the town of Belleville:
