Description
 
The Tasmanian Police Gazettes, commonly called the 'Reports of Crime' contain similar information to those of other Australian states. Listing general police information, promotions, demotions, those leaving the force etc, as well as property stolen, property found, arson, murder, warrants issued, arrests and discharges, absconders, court notices, and inquests. There are also licences for hawkers, carriers, oyster fisheries, and tanners.

Issued weekly, these are a goldmine of information for any historian (family history, local history or social history). Containing the names and dates of many thousands of people and events that occurred throughout 1872, finding information in here can help piece together stories in your family history.
