All the city and county directories (Polk, Hill-Donelly, et al) owned by the Leesburg Public Library were recently inventoried by Andrew Venturella. Using that data and the holdings of other Lake County Library System facilities, he has created a Lake County City Directories inventory. The inventory makes it much easier to determine which library owns a directory for a particular year and area. Kinseekers GenSoc would like to express our appreciation to the Leesburg Library for sharing this document with us.
