An amazing source of historical information, Government Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Australia.

The Government Gazettes for a particular locality eventually became standardised with the types of material and information included. The information contained in the years 1859-1870 include:Appointees to Government positions; Appointments of Magistrates and Justices of the Peace; Appointments of Returning Officers; Crown Land Leases; Deceased Estates; Government Acts and Proclamations; Impoundments; Legal Notices; Licences and Contracts; Lists of Officers, Medical Practitioners, Ministers of Religion etc.; Partnerships; Unclaimed Property; Unclaimed Letter; and Witnesses to Executions.

This USB collection contains all issues from the Queensland Government Gazettes from 1859 through to 1918. Fully searchable, these gazettes are full of names of everyday people, and often you can find reference to them here where you can't elsewhere
