If you had family living in New South Wales in 1877, have you thought of looking in Police Gazettes for information? These are a truly unique, valuable  and fascinating resource for local, family and social historians.

Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else. Apart from any changes within the police force which are all listed (promotions, demotions, dismissals, deaths etc), information is also given on rewards, housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, deserters, escaped prisoners, missing friends, and reports on those released. Notices from interstate police gazettes are sometimes included.

Unique features of this particular year's worth of issues is that they contain lists of Publicans' licences issued. Information that these give is persons name, situation of hotel, and hotel name.
