Sands Sydney Directory - sample years

The City of Sydney Archives has completed digitisation of three annual volumes of Sands Sydney Directory (1858/59-1932) and these are now available online.

The complete annual volumes for 1868, 1888, and 1918. have been scanned

The web address is then follow the path ->
About Sydney -> History and Archives -> Archives -> Catalogues and
search tools -> Sands Sydney Directory.

As far as can be determined this is the first time complete annual volumes have
been made available this way. Existing online services cover only the
'alphabetical' section of Sands.

The City of Sydney Archives is inviting family historians and others who use Sands, to take a look and if possible make comments back to them about the experience. From these comments, improvements can be made when the rest
of the digitisation project takes place in 2011/2012.

Comments relating particularly about the file size and download
times are welcome, but comments and suggestions about
all aspects of how you find the website will be of great use.
