A much underused source of information for historical purposes, are the Government Gazettes. These 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 may include:
- Government institutions & positions
- Insolvency & bankrupt notices
- Land transactions
- Legal notices
- Mining contracts
- Patent & trademark applications
- Private advertisements
