BRISBANE DIRECTORY 1878-1879, 1919

Do you have Brisbane ancestry?

Directories are a valuable resource for local, family and social historians as well as for researchers in other fields of Australian history. This data set contains two digitisations of Brisbane Directories: 1878-1879 (McNaught) and 1919 (Yates).

These contain a comprehensive Brisbane Street directory, Brisbane and suburbs alphabetical and trades & professional directories as well as several other specialised directories.

They cover Brisbane and the suburbs of Brisbane South, Woolloongabba, Annerley, Coorparoo, Bowden Hills, Bulimba, Newstead, Windsor, Albion, Sherwood, Corinda, Oxley, Sandgate, Brighton, Deagon, Valley, Red Hill and Paddington.

Directories are an extremely useful tool for establishing when and where a person lived. However this is just a starting point - look further in the directory to find out more information about the society in which they lived, the occupations they held and the people they knew. This is a terrific and truly fascinating genealogy resource for anyone exploring their family history or building a family tree.
