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

Apart from the usual inclusions, the 1883 gazette includes a Roll of Ratepaying Electors for Wimmera and Delatite, an Extradition Treaty with Salvador, and another with Tonga, Vital Statistics for Melbourne and Suburbs for 1882, Boards of Advice for School Districts, Certificates of Competency issued by the Victoria Steam Navigation Board and much more to interest all researchers into history.
