If you had family living in Victoria in 1880s, have you thought of looking at the Police Gazettes for information? These are a historian’s goldmine of information. Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes contain details and information that cannot be found anywhere else. Far from just listing those who were in the Police Force or those that were on the ‘wrong side’ of the law, you will also find entries of missing persons, witnesses to crime, and victims of crime.

Of course you also get weekly information on housebreaking, robberies, arson, murders, inquests, lost horses and cattle, deserters, escaped prisoners and reports on those released ... as well as some information from interstate police gazettes. This CD contains images of all 53 issues of the Victoria Police Gazette for 1882.
