In over 600 pages this Wise's Tasmanian Directory lists the names, addresses and occupations of many thousands of people in Tasmania during 1902, and as such is a vast resource for historians.

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 managers 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

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. 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. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
