Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, Police Gazettes contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else.
They include court lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Service, lists of arrests and discharges and descriptions, inquest verdicts, lost or stolen items, missing stock animals, escaped prisoners and missing persons. Also unique to this volume are lists of medical practitioners, marriage celebrants, chemists and commissioners of the Supreme Court. Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.
The 1897 issue features these special supplements:
list of Justices of the Peace
Magistrates resident beyond the colony
many photo supplements
Fascinating searching and useful information for anyone interested in Queensland’s history and people.
Now searchable, these Gazettes on CD-ROM open up a world of interesting and comprehensive information about individual people and their lives in Queensland.
