Government Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Australia. They were published by the government as a means of communication to officials and the general public and therefore contain information that is of great use in establishing an image of Australia and its people in the past.

Included is information relating to a wide variety of topics – of interest to both genealogists and historians:

  • Business partnerships – both the creation and dissolution
  • Cemetery trustees
  • Executions
  • Government appointments and general notices
  • Intestacies, insolvencies and wills
  • Land records
  • Lost and stolen animals, impoundings
  • Mining companies and leases granted
  • Patents and trademarks
  • Plans for towns and parishes
  • Successful tenderers for government works
  • Unclaimed letters

    There is wide variety of interesting material including an Order in Council on Deserters from Danish Merchant Vessels, Weekly Abstracts of Births and Deaths, information on the 1871 and 1881 census of Victoria, Register of Medical Practitioners for 1882, Grazing Permits, a patent application for “An improved composition for unhairing and preserving hides and skins” (a communication from Charles Jules Pierre Desnos, of Paris, France) and numerous references to miners, mining leases and mining companies.

    Example entry:

    NOTICE.-A Call (the fourteenth) of Threepence per share has been made on the capital of the above-named company, due and payable at the office of the company, Broadway, Dunolly, on Wednesday the eighth day of February 1882. J.H. YATES, Manager.
