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 - the core records for genealogists - they can certainly provide you with information on the region where your ancestors lived, as well as information on their occupation and more ...

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 principals 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.

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.
