So you've heard of Police Gazettes? But just what are they? These were weekly publications which were distributed among the Police Force, and included information on all sorts of happenings within the state of South Australia.

Far from being just a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians, these Police Gazettes contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else. As well as listing those in the police force with promotions, resignations, commendations etc, you will find information on courts lists, arson, murders, deserters, lists of those arrested and discharged, warrants issued, escaped prisoners, missing persons, and listings of stolen items (and from whom). Notices from police gazettes from other states are also often included.

At Kadina, the 30th ultimo, on the bodies of Jack Miller and Rose Miller (aborigines), who were burnt to death in their wurley the previous day. Verdict - "That Jack Miller and Rose Miller met their death through their wurley catching fire, the deceased both being incapably drunk at the time, there not being sufficient evidence to definitely show the origins of the fire".

A fascinating read for learning about the social history of the time, even if you don't have family there - this CD contains all issues that were produced in 1899.
