Government Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Australia.

  • Business partnerships – both the creation and dissolution
  • Cemetery and other trustees
  • !
  • Classified roll of state school teachers
  • Estates of deceased persons
  • 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
