Brunswick City Directories
So far, in all of the surrounding counties, only Brunswick has existing city directories & telephone books that can be viewed at the Public Library. Many repositories either did not keep them, or they were lost. Some may be in private collections. If you have an early one that you would like to get online, drop me a line, and I'll set a page up!
The city directory is a great source for the 1890 census year, as the census for Glynn County, Georgia is forever lost. Unfortunately this is only for people living within the city boundaries. There were hundreds of folks living outside of the city limits that are not listed in the book.
Newcastle, Reynolds, Union, Ellis, and Norwich Streets, today, run from the north end of town to the south end, but before 1908, they were called A, B, C, D, and E Streets respectively, north of Gloucester Street. So from Gloucester Street north to S street, they were lettered, and from Gloucester Street south to Dartmouth Street they were Newcastle, Reynolds, Union, Ellis, and Norwich Streets. If you wanted to see where great grandpa lived on B Street, you would drive down Reynolds Street north of Gloucester Street.
I have the actual images of these city directories. They have been put together in a slide show, PDF format to be viewed with Adobe Acrobat Reader. Email me if for more information. I can do lookups within these books also, they are just too large to transcribe right now.
An added bonus to the 1892 Brunswick City Directory was the St. Simons Island Directory, a business directory, and the Darien, McIntosh Co., Directory. All of the the Brunswick Directories are full of Brunswick's history, on the churches, schools, clubs, banks, office holders, and more.
