for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields

means of communication to officials and to the general public. Gazettes
therefore contain a range of valuable and interesting content such as the
following list of information:
- Acts of Parliament
- government appointments, resignations and transfers, including: Justices
of the Peace and returning officers
- government departments
- land acquisitions, rentals, sales and leases
- mining and minerals
