Police Gazettes are an untapped source of information for the genealogist. They contain a wealth of information for anyone with interests in someone who was in the Victorian Police Force as well a people police dealt with. You may find your ancestor among those on the wrong side of the law or perhaps as a victim of a robbery or assault, or even just a missing person or a witness to an event. Details can all be found in the Police Gazettes.
Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, the Police Gazettes contain fascinating details and information that can not be found anywhere else. Each issue is usually eight (or so) pages, and contains information on changes within the police force such as promotions, demotions, resignations, dismissals, deaths etc. Also details on rewards, housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, inquests, lost horses and cattle, deserters, escaped prisoners, missing friends, lost, found and stolen items, reports on those apprehended and discharged, and so much more. Notices from interstate police gazettes are often included.
The Police Gazettes are now readily available for the first time on CD-ROM. This CD is a compilation of 5 years (from 1891-1895) of the Victoria Police Gazette all on the one CD and it is FULLY SEARCHABLE!!
