Directories are one of the most effective ways of tracing members of a family, especially tradesmen. 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 Sands and McDougall's directory (or 'Sands and Mac' as these directories have become known), you can expect to find people named with their addresses under:

    • Street directory (Melbourne, Brighton, Brunswick, Collingwood, East Melbourne, Emerald Hill, Footscray, Hawthorn, Kew, North Melbourne, Northcote, Prahran, Richmond, Sandridge, St Kilda, Toorak, West Melbourne, Williamstown)
    • Alphabetical directory (state-wide)
    • Trade and professional directory

Other sections including names but usually not addresses:

    • Commerce management—banking, insurance companies, friendly societies, gold mining companies, railways, shipping
    • Societies, lodges and institutions—patrons, presidents, secretaries, treasurers
    • Government—MPs, heads of departments, receivers of revenue, paymasters, commissioners of crown lands, harbour masters and pilots, inspectors of distilleries, immigration agents, military officers
    • Consuls
    • Clergy
    • Courts—judicial officers, sheriffs, bailiffs, commissioners for taking affidavits, coroners
    • Municipalities—councillors, town clerks

Users should always refer to the display advertisements as they often provide names and addresses.
