If you had family in Tasmania in the early 1900s, be sure to check out the Police gazettes, as they provided information and instructions to members of the police force, which means you can find information here, that you can't find anywhere else.

You can expect the Tasmanian Police Gazettes (in the earliest years called Reports of Crime) to include the following information that will usually list names and sometimes personal details, descriptions with photograph, addresses and/or occupations may be an added bonus for the researcher:

  • apprehensions
  • convict returns
  • disciplining of police
  • escapees and absconders from custody
  • housebreakers and burglars
  • licensed carriers, hawkers, oyster fishers, and tanners
  • deserting wives, families, etc
  • deserting from military service
  • deserting from merchant vessels
  • inquests
  • missing friends
  • murderers and their victims
  • police resignations
  • prisoners discharged from gaols and released on tickets of leave
  • property and stock recovered
  • rewards - names of persons offering a reward
  • victims of arson
  • victims of horse and cattle stealing or straying
  • victims of lost or stolen property
  • victims of sheep stealing or straying
