Are you looking for your family in South Australia? Have you
thought of looking in the Police Gazettes? A valuable record, they are a source
of information which cannot be found anywhere else.
Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, you
will find details of any changes within the police force such as promotions,
demotions, resignations, dismissals, deaths etc. Information is also given on
rewards, housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle,
deserters, escaped prisoners, missing friends, lost or stolen items, reports on
those apprehended and released, and so much more. Notices from interstate police
gazettes are sometimes included.
