The Wise's directories are kind of an early version of our Yellow Pages and White Pages phone books combined. They list the following directories, in which you can expect to find people named with their addresses:

    • Alphabetical directory (state-wide)
    • Towns directory
    • Street directory
    • Trades directory

Other sections which include names are:

    • 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

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

You can use directories for more than just finding your reli's. Check out who lived down the street, and over the road (quite often they will be more reli's), or someone who married into the family. You can also find out what businesses and other facilities were in the area - which helps you get a picture of the social history of the time.
