Police Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Australia. Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes therefore contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else.
They include court lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Force, lists of arrests and discharges (which include physical descriptions), escaped prisoners, and sometimes missing persons. The Queensland Police Gazettes also often include details of the licence holders of: Auctioneers, Victuallers, Hawkers, Billiards, Wine Sellers and more. You will also find listing of medical practitioners, legal representatives, Justices of the Peace, and pharmacists included. Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.
Usually issued weekly, here collected together on the one CD is the whole of the Queensland 1893 years worth of issues.
