If you had family living in Queensland in the 1860s, have you thought of looking at the Police Gazettes for information? These are a historian's goldmine of information. Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else. Far from just listing those who were in the Police Force, or those that were on the 'wrong side' of the law - you will also find entries of missing persons, or they might be a witness to crime, or they may have had something stolen from them, or they may even have found an item, and reported it to the Police.

Produced once a month, you still get information on the housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, deserters, escaped prisoners and reports on those released ... as well as some information from interstate police gazettes ... and so much more.

This product starts with the 22 July 1864 issue, this was the very first issue ever released, and continues with one issue a month until the end of December 1866. Each issue is usually four or five pages in length, and is full of fascinating information.
