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.
