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.

Included is information relating to a wide variety of topics – of interest to both genealogists and historians:

    • Business partnerships – both the creation and dissolution
    • Cemetery and other trustees
    • Classified roll of state school teachers
    • Estates of deceased persons
    • Executions
    • Government appointments and general notices
    • Intestacies, insolvencies and wills
    • Land records
    • Lost and stolen animals, impoundings
    • Mining companies and leases granted
    • Patents and trademarks
    • Plans for towns and parishes
    • Successful tenderers for government works
    • Unclaimed letters

There is wide variety of interesting material including Applications for Water-Right Licenses, Weekly Abstracts of Births and Deaths, returns showing the arrivals and departures by sea at the various ports, certificates of competency issued by the Victoria Steam Navigation Board, Grazing Permits, a patent application for “An improved hand grenade for extinguishing fires” (David Daggett, New York, America) and numerous references to miners, mining leases and mining companies.
