Walch's Tasmanian Almanac contains detailed information about Tasmania, including all regions and towns of the state.
Each Almanac contains hundreds of topics. Not only does it list thousands of people and the positions they held, but more than that, there are details on the towns and the services that each had, as well as the societies and clubs, railways, charities, telegraph and postal services available. There are registered medical practitioners, dentists and chemists, as well as those in law departments, coroners and ministers of religion, and the government and military forces. There are lists of obituaries that were published during the previous year's newspapers ... the list could go on.
Almanacs are a useful resource for adding ‘flesh to the bones'. Find out more about your ancestors and the society in which they lived, their occupations, the towns they lived in, the businesses in the district and more.
