If you had family living in New South Wales in 1869, have you thought of looking at the Police Gazettes for information? An unusual source of information, these are not only unique in the type of information that they contain, but they are a goldmine of useful information for genealogists. Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else.

This CD-ROM is a compilation of all 52 issues of the New South Wales Police Gazette that were produced during 1869. Each issue is about eight pages in length, and contains information such as court lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Service, lists of arrests and discharges (which include physical descriptions on the persons), escaped prisoners, and missing persons ... even lost and found items. Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.
