The main primary source is The Argus via Trove newspapers: http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/home

Other newspapers are also used to verify details, including The Age.

 

Details of games involving Carlton are often verified on the comprehensive Blueseum site: http://www.blueseum.org/

 

The Footballer annual (compiled by Thomas P Power) has proven invaluable in producing a complete listing of results for the seasons 1875 to 1879.

 

Results are also being checked and cross-referenced progressively against the definitive volumes of the “The Origins of Australian Football: Victoria’s Early History” series by Mark Pennings.
