A truly fascinating read, even if you don't have family there - the Police Gazettes contain a whole host of information about people and events that happened throughout the year.

Generally issued weekly, the Police Gazettes were published to provide information and instructions to members of the police force, and as such, you can find information here that you will not find anywhere else.

There are literally thousands of names of people mentioned throughout the years issues, and not just for those who committed robbery or murder, but for those that have items stolen, or those that found items, inquests, missing friends or family are often mentioned, changes in the police force, illegal immigrants, and sometimes deaths in public places in included. There are also warrants issued, and apprehensions, deserters from service, and deserters from family, prisoners discharged and well as those who escaped ... and more.
