Are you looking for your family in South Australia, and you think you've looked everywhere? Have you tried the Police Gazettes? Don't dismiss these just because they have the word 'police' in the title - they are a massive source of historical information (both genealogical and social).

As the Police Gazettes were produced for 'the  police force only' you will find information included in them, that you will not find anywhere else. You will find details of changes within the police force such as promotions, demotions, resignations, dismissals, deaths etc. Information is also given on rewards, housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, deserters, escaped prisoners, missing friends, lost, found and stolen items, reports on those apprehended and released, and so much more. Notices from interstate police gazettes are often included.

SAMPLE ENTRY (from the 1 September 1909 issue):

Housebreaking, &c.
On the night of the 26th ultimo, the shop of Frederick Roberts, hairdresser and tobacconist, at 116 Rundle Street, Kent Town, was feloniously entered, and the following stolen:- Three black-handled razors, branded "Sinfoine", scratches on handles; a razor, brown-colour wooden handle; and a black-handled razor; a pair of scissors; 2lbs or dark Havelock tobacco in 2oz. tins; 2 bottles of dark hair dye, partly filled; a few packets of cigarettes; some cigars; and 1s 6d in coppers - total value £2 5s.; razors only identifiable. - (C.1897)

Not only is this a valuable resource for those researching in South Australia, but it makes for fascinating reading even if you don't have family there.
