City Directories[edit | edit source]
Directories of heads of households have been published for all the major cities and many of the smaller cities in Idaho. Many counties also have directories of their residents for scattered years. Many of these directories are in the holdings of the Idaho State Archives in Boise.
The Family History Library in Salt Lake City has copies of directories for the following cities. To access those without film numbers listed, use the Place-names Search in the FamilySearch Catalog for:

Farm Directories[edit | edit source]
The Gem State Rural Publishing Company published books and magazines out of Caldwell, Idaho during the early part of the 20th Century. One of the series envisioned by this company was the Gem State Rural (Farm) Directory, to be published in several volumes. The intention was to print a directory for each county or combination of counties for the state. At least five volumes were printed, and a sixth was planned. At least one of these volumes is available online. Some are quite rare and copies are difficult to locate.
- Ada County, 1917-1918
- Bonneville, Madison, and Jefferson Counties, [dates??; copies not yet located]
- Canyon County, 1916-1917
- Gooding, Minidoka, and Lincoln Counties [planned but apparently never printed]
- Malheur County, Oregon and Owyhee County, Idaho, 1918-1919
- Twin Falls County, 1916-1917
These farm directories listed land owners by town, including those who resided outside the county. Names of owners, size of family, acreage, location of the land, and a list of produce and livestock grown are included.
