Description
 
One of the most effective ways of tracing members of a family, especially tradesmen, is through searching directories. Many small businesses needed to ensure the public was aware of their activity and one of the better ways to do this in an age before media dominated was via a directory. The value of directories as a research tool is enhanced when no census material is available.

In this directory you can expect to find people named with their addresses under:

  • Alphabetical directory (colony-wide)
  • Towns directory
  • Street directory (Hobart and Launceston only)
  • Trades directory
Other sections including names but usually not addresses:
  • Government and official directory
  • The Courts, barristers, solicitors, public notaries and Justices of the Peace
  • Medical practitioners, dentists and chemists
  • University of Tasmania staff
  • Non-government school managers and music teachers
  • Clergy
  • Societies, dairy producers, fruit growers, hop growers, pastoral station owners and managers
  • Municipal officers, Road Trusts secretaries, Fruit Board inspectors, Marine Boards members
  • Bankers, building societies, insurance officers and company managers
  • Manufacturers of English goods for export to Tasmania
Users should always refer to the display advertisements as they often provide names and addresses.

A fascinating read for anyone, but more so if you have family in Tasmania during this era. This CD contains high quality scanned images of the whole of year's volume, and contains all 5 years on a single CD. These have been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.

Each year is also available individually:

Tasmania Post Office Directory 1907
Tasmania Post Office Directory 1908
Tasmania Post Office Directory 1909
Tasmania Post Office Directory 1910
