Description
 
So you've heard of Police Gazettes? But just what are they? These were weekly publications which were distributed among the Police Force, and included information on all sorts of happenings within the state of New South Wales.

Far from being just a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians, these Police Gazettes contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else. As well as listing those in the police force with promotions, resignations, commendations etc, you will find information on courts lists, arson, murders, deserters, lists of those arrested and discharged, warrants issued, escaped prisoners, missing persons, and listings of stolen items (and from whom). Notices from police gazettes from other states are also often included.

A fascinating read for learning about the social history of the time, even if you don't have family there - this CD contains all issues that were produced in 1880.

Example entry taken from 28 January 1880 issue:
Burglaries, Stealing from Premises &c.
Sydney - Stolen on the 14th instant, from No. 131, Phillip-street, the property of Clara Treen, a servant, - A print dress, a holland dress, two night dresses, and a brush and comb. Identifiable.

Now searchable, these Gazettes on CD-ROM open up a world of interesting and comprehensive information about individual people and their lives in early New South Wales. Fascinating searching and useful information for anyone interested in New South Wales' history and people.

High quality scanned images of the whole years worth of issues. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
