Australian Dictionary of Biography
The Australian Dictionary of Biography was once a well thumbed addition to Reference collections in Australia's public libraries. Today the ADB is a valuable free online resource for local and family historians alike.
Search by place name for significant people connected to your place.
The Australian Dictionary of Biography want to add entries for women active 1788-1890, and are asking for your suggestions. All you need to provide is name, profession/significance, birth and death date. The ADB will be applying for a grant to research and write the dictionary entries. Read their August newsletter for further information.
