The full title of the 264 page directory is "Ballarat and Ballarat District Directory containing Alphabetical, Trade and Professional Directory of Ballarat West, Ballarat East, Sebastopol and Buninyong, together with Illustrations and descriptive information in reference to resorts &c, Municipal, legal, mining and other useful information." Published by Harry Tulloch Prop Ltd.
Use this unique directory to find both male and female family members. The publishers' note at the front highlights this special feature of the directory:
The publishers have much pleasure in placing this, the first section of a complete Ballarat and District Directory, containing the name and address of every person over the age of 21 years, (male and female) in Ballarat West, Ballarat East, Sebastopol and Buninyong, together with other useful information. This is the first work of its kind ever issued in any provincial City of Australasia.
It contains about 50 advertisements - all useful information, often including names of people and places.
The directory, including most text in the ads, is searchable, useful not only for finding names, but also places occupations and other information for family and local historians.
NOTE: The text on a few pages in the original is faint and in some cases cut off. This may limit the searching accuracy on the pages concerned, but the pages concerned are quite readable on screen.
Originally produced by Archive CD Books Australia in 2004, this title has now been remastered and re-released, and includes better searching capability. This CD contains high quality scanned images of the whole of the original book, and has been bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
