Trade Directories are a very useful way of tracing ancestors and assessing the economic life of a town, village or parish.  Local Studies libraries are a good source, as is the online website  http://www.historicaldirectories.org/

This image is taken from the University of Leicester, Digital Library of Historic Directories which has digitised images of directories from around the country.  There is an powerful search engine which will find entries using surnames, trades addresses or other key words.  Many, if not most, of the transcriptions above can now be seen as digital images on this excellent site.
