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 Queensland directories covers 1911-1915. 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
