If you had family living in Queensland in 1899, have you thought of looking in Police Gazettes for information? These are a truly 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 and found items, deserters, escaped prisoners, missing friends, warrants issued, and reports on those released, you will also find notices from interstate police gazettes are 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 for the year.
