How does information on pubs and publicans help researchers?
Pubs played an important role in ancestors’ lives. They were important landmarks and centres of social activities in many towns and cities and as such settings for a number of significant events. They also provided employment for the publicans and many workers. Illustrations of hotels may be found at Picture Australia [new window], which includes Picture Queensland. There are many more materials than this available but the list below indicates the types of records to be found.
