Government Gazettes are a much underused source, partly because of their availability (you would usually only find them select archives offices or libraries), and partly because people don't know about them. Now that Archive CD Books Australia has started releasing them on CD-ROM, everyone has access to this amazing resource.
The first Queensland Government Gazette was issued on 10 December 1859, and continued weekly since then. This CD-ROM is a compilation of those issued for all of 1859 and 1860 (from issue 1 to 79), a total of nearly 700 pages.
Full of fascinating information, both historical and genealogical, you will find information such as land transaction, legal notices, proclamations, insolvency and bankrupt notices, impoundments, partnerships, licences, contracts, government institutions and positions, statistics and much more. So if you've got an interesting in Queensland during this period - you're bound to find something of interest.
