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 directory is no exception.
 

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 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.

Divided into various sections this book begins with an index for the almanac section which contains over 250 various topics. Everything from telegraph charges, to the ministers of churches, from the head officers in the Adelaide Fire Brigade to a farmer's calendar. From statistics, to information and names of people - you will find it all here. It also includes a Government Directory followed by Medical and Charitiable Institutions, Judicial and Legal Departments, Legal Profession, Military Establishment, Railways, Banks, Mercantile, Customs and Shipping, and Societies.

The major part of this publication is the South Australian Directory. There are a total of 92 towns and suburbs covered by this directory. For city and suburbs you will find that it covers Adelaide (North and South), Port Adelaide, Alberton and Queenstown, Kensington and Norwood, Glenelg, and Brighton. These list businesses and householders alphabetically, together with their occupation and address

The rest are more regional, and include Clare, the Barossa, Kadina, Mount Barker, Mount Gambier, Yorke's Peninsula and more. These list residents town by town, together with their occupation and address. The final section is 150+ pages of advertisements of local businesses, many of which are illustrated.

This ebook is a the same as the CD version from Archive Digital Books Australasia which is available from Gould Genealogy & other retailers. 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.
