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 almanac and directory you can expect to find people named with their addresses under:

  • Street directory (Adelaide and North Adelaide only)
  • Alphabetical directory (by town and district)
  • Trade and professional directory
  • Advertisers' directory

Other sections including names but usually not addresses::

  • Government and official directory
  • Courts, barristers, JPs, and solicitors
  • Military officers
  • Consuls
  • Medical practitioners licensed to vaccinate
  • Postmasters
  • Clergy
  • Municipal officers
  • Society officers

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

High quality scanned images of the whole of the original book. It has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
