NOTE: The entries reference a page number in the GFHG document, and NOT the date or page in the Geelong Advertiser.  If you use the microfilms of the Geelong Advertiser, you will need to search eleven years of issues for the individual entry in advertisements or articles.  At a later stage the full references may be transcribed into this database but at this stage the priority is a basic index.
