Companion index

The Companion index database contains a list of names mentioned in the books available in the local history section of the Victor Harbor Library. At this stage, individual family histories have not been included.

This link takes you to the Victor Harbor Library site where you will find a direct link to the Companion index at the end of the first section of text.

Entries are listed alphabetically by surname, then first name or title, then book title.

    Please note the following:

  • Name spellings have been recorded as written in the book or document. There may be spelling variations or actual errors in these records. Researchers should be flexible and imaginative with searches. Browsing the database is recommended.
  • If no first name or initial is available, the title of a person has been used where possible. Titles may be social, political, religious, academic, medical or military. When searching, first check in the alphabetical listing, as a person may be listed under Captain or Miss rather than their first name.
  • Where the surname is not clear or not listed, ‘unknown’ has been used as the surname. These names appear alphabetically under U.


Although we have taken every care to record details accurately, errors do occur. If you find a discrepancy between the database and a book, please contact us at, so we can amend the entry.
