Looking for directories of Jefferson county 1890-1910

Looking for directories of Jefferson county 1890-1910

Surnames: Ballantyne, Olaveson, and married in families.
I'm trying to track down the arrival of several of my ancestors and their siblings/spouses to the Rigby area. Does anyone know of libraries or other repositories that contain city directories for this time period that cover Jefferson county? (Each family has several births and baptisms that should have occurred during this period that I'm having a hard time pinning down.)

Hi,
You can contact the Rigby Public Library, 208-745-8231 .

Rigby Museum, 208-745-8423.

If neither of these work, provide the names of the parents, where and when they were born and I might be able to find something.

Somewhere on the internet you can find the newspaper Rigby Star, as far as I can remember. I cannot remember where. Once also the Museum in Idaho Falls did help me to find som information.
I am Danish, and my grandfather's brother lived in Jefferson County (Rigby, Ririe and other places there around) from 1903 to around 1950. His name was Lars Ledet, and he was a farmer. and for a period a Peace judge and a board member of some Canal society. When you come over material and he being mentioned I would apreciate you to inform me, thank you.
He came back here to die. He died in Løkken, Denmark i 1956, when I was 4 years old. I only just remember him. But I have some of his papers here now.
