Description
 
Generally issued weekly Government Gazettes, are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Australia. They are published by governments and their agencies as a means of communication to officials and to the general public.

Gazettes contain a whole range of valuable and interesting content, and in it you will find thousands of ordinary people and localities mentioned throughout. The information is too varied to describe in full, but some regular features are:

  • acts of parliament
  • government appointments, resignations and transfers, including Justices of the Peace and returning officers
  • government departments
  • insolvents
  • land acquisitions, rentals, sales and leases
  • mining and minerals
  • petitions
  • ministers able to perform marriages
  • details of money received and paid by the curator of intestate estates

Example entry taken from the 6 January 1903 issue:
