Czech Republic: Address and Telephone Directories

Telephone and address directories are used by genealogists and historians to identify people and businesses from a particular place and era. This guide lists directories from the Czech Republic in the Library of Congress collection.

Most residential and general organizational telephone directories are not cataloged by the Library of Congress, even though the Library maintains a large collection of foreign and domestic directories. We have therefore compiled this list of directories from the former Czechoslovakia and from the Czech Republic as a finding aid for our staff and researchers. The uncataloged directories listed in this guide reflect holdings as of 2014.

In addition to the uncataloged directories listed in this guide, the Library also holds a handful that are cataloged and may be requested using the online catalog. To locate these directories, search the Library of Congress Online Catalog using subject keywords such as "Czechoslovakia" or "Czech," or the name of a city, and "directories." In addition to telephone directories, this kind of search also yields business/address directories from the Czech Republic or from Czechoslovakia.


Current Online Directories

Besides using printed telephone directories, a reader may find it helpful to use current online directories available for free on the Internet.
