Directories are an invaluable resource for local, family and social historians as well as for researchers in other fields of Australian history. While they do not give you birth, death and marriage details - core records for genealogists and family historians - they can certainly provide you with information on the region where your ancestors lived, as well as information on their occupation and much more.

This compendium of Wise's directories contains the five directories covering the 1901-1905 period. Each is very comprehensive containing the following sub-directories:

  • Brisbane post office directory, with information on residents alphabetically by street
  • Country towns (including many which are now suburbs of Brisbane): in general, it gives the location, other significant details about the town and a listing of residents
  • Overall Alphabetical directory
  • Trades
  • Legal - includes barristers, solicitors, conveyancers and commissioners for taking affidavits
  • Medical – includes hospitals and medical / dental boards, medical practitioners, pharmaceutical chemists, and dental surgeons
  • Educational – includes teachers at Private schools as well as teachers and professors of drawing, music, painting and shorthand
  • Ecclesiastical – Church of England, Roman Catholic, Presbyterian, Congregational, Baptist, Primitive Methodist, Queensland Methodist Conference, Hebrew Church, Salvation Army, United German and Scandanavian Lutherans, Lutheran Synod, Catholic Apostolic, Church of Christ, Independent Methodist, New Jerusalem, United Methodist Free Church (the list varies between years)
  • Pastoral and Agricultural: one listing according to the type of enterprise (for example, sugar refiners, sugar planters, vignerons, arrowroot manufacturers, coffee planters, fruit growers, and poultry farmers) and another an alphabetical listing of stations, runs and grazing farms
  • Local Government
  • Official – lists the federal representatives for each state, key Commonwealth Departmental officials and similar state representatives and officials for Queensland
  • and hundreds of advertisements
