    Within 15 minutes of searching I found that a great uncle had run foul of the law at Yeppoon and Rockhampton. Considering that he was 17 years old it would have been safe to assume that he was still at home with his parents in Charters Towers. It just goes to show that there is always more to find out. A great Aunt had been raped when she was 14 years old. I was able to read the court case in the newspapers on Trove but there was no indication as to the sentence the young man received. The Police Gazettes tel me that the young man was sentenced to 3 years hard labour in Stuart Creek prison, Townsville. Just for these two bits of information the purchase has been justified.

    I purchased this item as contemporary newspaers did not record all crimes. While using this I have found so many more items that I would not found by any other means. While I am using it for Local History research it is an invaluable tool for Family History researchers. The pages are seachable as well handy looking for names and locations

    Having 3 of my ancestors serving in the QPS, this product is a no-brainer. Service records, transfers and the like fill in a myriad of blanks in the family tales. My grandfathers whole service record is listed from initial appointment as a constable to his retirement 40 years later. Each record has a story involved, often linking to Trove records of court cases. It is enlightening when a family member gets mentioned on the other side of the law. A great source of criminal history too.
