Government Gazettes are a much underused source, partly because of their availability (you would usually only find them in select archives offices or libraries), and partly because people don't know about them. Now that Archive Digital Books Australasia is releasing them on CD-ROM, everyone has access to this amazing resource.
The Government Gazettes were weekly newspapers (although there were extra issues produced as well from time to time), and this CD set contains all issues that were released for the years 1851-1860 in New South Wales.
Full of fascinating information, both historical and genealogical, you will find information such as land transactions, legal notices, horse and cattle impoundments, partnerships, licences, government contracts and an enormous amount of information relating to convicts, such as Certificates of Freedom, Tickets-of-Leave Granted, Tickets-of-Leave Cancelled, Absconders from Employment, Lists of Runaways Apprehended ... and so much more. So if you've got an interest in New South Wales during this period - you're bound to find something of interest.
