Adelaide Town and Country Directory 1868

The Adelaide Almanack Town and Country Directory


17,000+ records

This directory covers all of South Australia for the year 1868. Note that the vast majority of the listings do not include women's names, unless the woman was a business owner. Try searching for a partner's name (male) first. Also, the published data is heavily abbreviated, for example Norwood is often abbreviated to "Nwd". We have extended the abbreviation where the full context was obvious.

The original book is available in many state libraries or digitally on Trove and you can use the page number reference to locate the directory source.
