Gazettes are published by governments and their agencies as a means of communication to officials and the general public. As such they are useful, not only to monitor the actions of the government, but also as far as family historians are concerned, they are valuable primary source documents.

Government gazettes for a particular locality eventually become standardised with the type of material listed. In the 1870s you can expect the Victorian Government Gazettes to include the following information that will usually list names and sometimes name of emigrant vessel, addresses and/or occupations:
  • applicants for patents
  • appointees to government positions
  • auctioneers
  • cemetery and church land trustees
  • consuls
  • creation and dissolution of business partnerships
  • depasturing licences
  • insolvents
  • intestate estates—private notices seeking claimants
  • land purchasers
  • members elected to the Legislative Council
  • mining lease applicants
  • missing persons
  • municipal councillors
  • new holders of patents
  • persons owing money to Treasury
  • persons named in writs to be executed by the Sheriff
  • petitioners to establish local government
  • shareholders in companies seeking registration as limited liability companies
  • successful tenderers for government business and works
  • unclaimed letters
Listing tens of thousands of people in each year of the Government Gazette, from all walks of life, these are a wonderful resource for historians, for social history, local history and family history.
