Schaumburg Phone Directories in Our Library’s Collection

Hi Everyone! 

Our Local History Librarian made me aware of some reference material in our collection that might be of some use to anyone that is searching more recent “roots” in Schaumburg, IL.  

City Directories have been a valuable resource for genealogical researchers.  They morphed in the late 1920s into what we have today as Phone Directories. 

If anyone local to our area is personally researching Schaumburg “roots”, be aware that our library has Schaumburg telephone directories for the following years: 

 1928                            

 1948 

 1949 

 1953 

 1956 

 1957 

 1958 

 1959 

 1991 to Present 

Unfortunately, you can see that what material we have only goes back as far as 1928 with significant gaps of material from that point on until 1991. 

Perhaps our earliest telephone directories can help someone researching more current “roots” in Schaumburg, IL. 

I hope this information can help someone make some more recent connections to their Schaumburg genealogical roots.
