Government Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Australia. They were published by the government as a means of communication to officials and the general public and therefore contain information that is of great use in establishing an image of Australia and its people in the past.
They include a range of information such as land transactions, legal notices, proclamations, insolvency and bankrupt notices, impoundments, private advertisements, patent applications, partnerships, licences, contracts, government institutions and positions, statistics and much more.
They have information covering a broad spectrum of the community with important details and facts on thousands of people.The Victorian Government Gazette for 1851 was the first for that colony, and started half way through the year. Before this there were several years of Port Phillip Gazettes.
This product provides a great tool for researching Victorian history, making information that is difficult to find easily accessible on one CD.
