Description
 
If you had family living in New South Wales in 1886, have you thought of looking in Police Gazettes for information? These are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians.

Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else. Apart from any changes within the police force which are all listed (promotions, demotions, dismissals, deaths etc), information is also given on housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, deserters, escaped prisoners, inquest verdicts, missing friends, and reports on those released. Notices from interstate police gazettes are sometimes included.
