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 Sands and McDougall’s directories covers 1921-1925. Each is very comprehensive containing the following sub-directories:

  • City Streets Directory, with a street index, and street by street listings of all houses and the householder at each address
  • A Country Directory section that lists people alphabetically for each town together with their occupation
  • An Alphabetical Directory covering the whole of Victoria
  • Melbourne and Suburban Professional and Trade Directory, listing people by their trade
  • Country Professional and Trade Directory, complements the Melbourne list to give coverage of all Victoria

Separate directories are given for the following areas, making the work comprehensive and complete:

  • Agricultural and Pastoral – lists people alphabetically by their agricultural activity
  • Government and Official – Commonwealth and Victorian office bearers
  • Legal and Judicial – including Justices of the Peace
  • Ecclesiastical – the Australian Church, Baptist Union of Victoria, Particular Baptist, Catholic Apostolic, Christadelphian, Christian Science, Church of England, Churches of Christ, Congregational, First Church of Christ Scientist, Free Presbyterian, Greek Orthodox, Hebrew Synagogue, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic, Salvation Army, Seventh Day Adventist, Unitarian Church, Welsh Presbyterian (the list varies between years)

The directories include many pages of advertisements - all useful information, often including names of people and places. The whole of each of the directories, including most text in the advertisements, is searchable, useful not only for finding names, but also places, occupations and other information for family and local historians.
