The papers are currently being scanned and hopefully would be completed by the end of the financial year [June 2012]. The papers in this lot are:
- Geelong Advertiser and Squatters’ Advocate (28 May 1845-26 Oct 1847)
- Geelong Advertiser (29 Oct 1847-20 Dec 1851)
- Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer (22 Dec 1851-9 Aug 1856)
Now for the latest news!
It is so close you can smell it! If you go to TROVE and search for Geelong Advertiser you’ll see what I mean! For the results which include the title(s) and date range shown above it also shows the magic words [coming soon].
A layman’s interpretation is the OCR / text part is loaded [or in the process of being loaded] and the images will follow.
The bottom line is that it is VERY CLOSE!
I suggest that everyone gets some extra sleep in preparation for some LONG nights searching the Addy.
And for those that want 1843 or 1857 or later – let’s be very grateful that at least it’s started and there will be more to come.
