CD-116  -  The Pittsburgh Directory for 1815 

Remarkable little book with 159 pages containing the names, professions and residence of heads of families and persons in the Burrough of Pittsburgh with an appendix.  This is a reprint published in 1905, said to be published exactly like the original.  The 1815 directory was the first for Pittsburgh.

Full of info!  In addition to directory of residents, includes officers of organizations, owners of businesses, elected burrough officials, county, state and federal officials; charts to convert currencies of the time, and lots more to help you put your ancestor in the context of his or her time. And a great research tool since it falls in the middle between the 1810 and 1820 censuses!  This CD eBook is searchable.

These images were scanned to .pdf and require Adobe Reader to view.  Reader is available for free from  The images were digitally enhanced for the best possible quality.  Because we try to preserve the books and not "break them down" during the scanning process, some of the pages may be a bit crooked. We scan using grey scale, which makes the file a bit larger, but helps to keep the text crisp.  There may be an off-white background, depending on the quality of the original.  Sometimes there may also be a "halo" shadow from the scan. Some of our original books were in poor condition, but if the original is readable, the CD image will be also. These are such great resources, a few blemishes should be acceptable for such old, rare books.
