1860 saw the fourth edition of the 'Sands, Kenny & Co's Commercial & General Melbourne Directory'. Contains over 450 pages

This directory is divided into four main sections: Alphabetical; Street; Towns; and Trades and Professions. These classifications enable the enquirer to see at a glance, first, the names of Householders or Traders in any one Town; secondly, a street-by-street listing of householders in Hobart and Launceston; thirdly, the address and occupation of any resident in the State; as well as the number of persons throughout Tasmania, engaged in any one trade or calling.

In this directory you can expect to find people named with their addresses under:

  • Alphabetical directory (colony-wide)
  • Street directory (Hobart and Launceston only)
  • Towns directory
  • 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
  • Non-government school managers and music teachers
  • Returning Officers
  • Clergy
  • Municipal officers, Road Trusts secretaries, Fruit Board inspectors, Marine Boards members
  • Bankers, insurance officers and company managers
  • Advertisers
  • Manufacturers of English goods for export to Tasmania
  • Users should always refer to the display advertisements as they often provide names and addresses.

    Directories are 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.
