Glasgow Post Office directories online

The Internet Archive at www.archive.org now hosts digitsied copies of the Post Office Glasgow Directories from 1809-10, 1815, and 1818-28. To find them use the following search terms:

1809: glasgowdirectory1809glas
1810: glasgowdirectory1810glas
1815: glasgowdirectory1815glas
1818: glasgowdirectory1818glas
etc

(With thanks to Ronnie Scott of the Strathclyde Genealogy Survivors Group)

The 1863-64 directory is also online through Google Books at http://tinyurl.com/2g48v72 and 1866-67 at http://tinyurl.com/2cqc693 . The first directory, Nathaniel Jones edition from 1787 can be viewed at www.glasgowstories.com, whilst a later directory from 1927 can be browsed at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~glasgow/index-glas.htm

And if anyone wants a look up from the 1966 edition give me a shout - it's taking up half a bleedin' shelf here! :)
