Publisher: Archive Digital Books Australasia

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 Government Gazettes were weekly newspapers (although there were extra issues produced as well), and this CD contains all issues that were released for the year 1864. Full of fascinating information, both historical and genealogical, youf will find information such as government notices, public works notices, land sales, tenders notices, and mining by-laws, as well as stock impound listings, court notices, police sales, unclaimed letters lists, patent applications, dissolution of business partnerships, private advertisements (many of which include lost or stolen property with rewards) and more. So if you've got an interesting in Queensland during this period - you're bound to find something of interest.
