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 they are being 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 1876. Full of fascinating information, both historical and genealogical, you will find information such as government notices, public works notices, land sales, tenders notices, appointees to government positions, appointments of magistrates and Justices of the Peace, crown land leases, deceased estates, dissolution of business partnerships, bankruptcy and insolvency, notices or rewards for lost or stolen property and stock, unclaimed letters, unclaimed property (railways) and so much more.
If you've got an interest in Queensland during this period - you're bound to find something of interest.
Containing over 2800 pages, they are 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.
