So you've heard of Government Gazettes ... but do you really know what they are? In short the Government Gazettes were weekly newspapers (although there were extra issues produced from time to time), that contain fascinating information, both historical and genealogical.

Information such as land transactions, legal notices, insolvency and bankrupt notices, ecclesiastical and next of kin notices, impoundments, private notices, patent applications, absconders and deserters, as well as missing people, partnerships, licences, contracts, government institutions and positions, private advertisements, statistics and much more. So if you've got an interest in Victoria during this period - you're bound to find something of interest.

Government Gazettes are a much underused source, partly because of their availability (you would usually only find them in select archives offices or libraries), and partly because people don't know about them. Now that Archive CD Books Australia has started releasing them on CD-ROM, everyone has access to this amazing resource.

This CD-ROM contains all issues that were release in Victoria for the year 1865.
