Directories and Almanacs are a valuable resource for local, family and social historians as well as for researchers in other fields of Australian history, and this Pugh's Directory is no exception.
While you won't find 'core' genealogical information such as births, deaths and marriages - you will be able to find out more about the towns, the social lives and society in which people lived in this era.
This 10th edition of Pugh's, contains a Brisbane Directory as well as a Country Directory. The Brisbane directory lists the occupations alphabetically with names under each, together with their street name, and the Country directory lists the towns together with their stations, and station-owners (so it is not as comprehensive as latter years of these directories).
In addition it also includes details on over 40 other topics. Everything from Eclipses and Newspapers, to Postal Information and the Works Department is covered, as well as including numerous advertisements. This is a invaluable guide for finding more on the social history of Queensland in the 1860s.

This CD contains high quality scanned images of the whole original volume, and has been bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
