A unique, and under-used source, the Police Gazettes are an extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians throughout Australia.
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 housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, deserters, escaped prisoners, missing friends, reports on those released, even deaths reported to the police (together with their place of death and cause of death given). Notices from interstate police gazettes are sometimes included.
This compendium contains five years of New South Wales Police Gazettes, from 1881 to 1885 at a discounted price.
This CD contains high quality scanned images of the whole of each year's issues. It has been bookmarked for easy navigation. and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
