I saw the database title on  Ancestry.com titled “Pastoral Directories” and immediately searched for a relative who was an Australian minister. He was not located. And that’s because this directory was of livestock owners–not ministers. Always learn about a new database before searching it. And always keep your assumptions in check. Things might not mean what you think they do.
