An amazing source of genealogical and historical information, the Police Gazettes have been a relatively untouched resource, partly because of accessibility and partly because they weren't generally known as a key source. Now that they are being released on searchable CD-ROM, they are available for all to use.
Anyone researching their family will have a 'lost' family member or two! You may well find them listed here, on either side of the law. Maybe they were a policeman who received a promotion, or someone who had something stolen from them - it's all here. You can often find physical details on persons listed here if they were missing, wanted or released, which helps to paint a picture of them (giving name, aliases used, age, height, colour hair, colour eyes, distinguishing features, even colour clothing worn).
This CD contains the complete issues released during 1906-1910, and includes information on housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, inquest verdicts, escaped prisoners and reports on those released. Also included are court lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Service, lists of arrests, escaped prisoners, and missing persons, men deserting their wives and children as well as deserters from service, missing friends and more ... Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included, and some photographs of those missing or wanted are in these issues.
This single CD compendium is made up of the five publications, the Queensland Police Gazettes 1906 through to 1910, each of which is available individually.
High quality scanned images of the whole of each years worth of issues. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
