An unusual source of historical information, but no less important is Education Gazettes'. For anyone with either connections to the Education Department, or just an interest in its history, this is a vast collection. This CD is a compilation of 7 years worth of these Gazettes from 1899-1905.
Gazettes are published by governments and their agencies as a means of communication to officials and the general public. As such they are useful, not only to monitor the actions of the government, but also as far as family historians are concerned, they are valuable primary source documents.
Containing all issues that were issued during the 1899-1905 period (generally one a month), these Education Gazettes contain the names, teaching level and school of thousands of teachers throughout Queensland during this time frame.
Listing Admissions, Admissions Cancelled, Transfers, Transfers Cancelled, Notifications of Vacancies, those that Left the Service, Schools Opened, Schools Closed, as well as Scholarships Granted. There is a long list of those who have had Grade Promotions together with their previous teaching level, as well as the new one. There are literally thousands of names of people mentioned in these Gazettes.
Released on fully-searchable CD-ROM, using these valuable documents has never been easier. The CD contains high quality scanned images of the whole years worth of issues. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
