The Public Archives and Records Office has a collection of provincial and/or city directories dating from 1864. These are sporadic in nature, with approximately a ten year interval between volumes. They generally give an alphabetical listing of residents by locality with an indication of their occupation. In the case of Charlottetown and Summerside, they may also give a listing by street address. Business directories may also be useful in placing someone in a specific location at a specific date.
