A unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource, Government Gazettes are a must 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 trustees
  • 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

Some items worth noting in this year are the alphabetical lists of voters for various Vermin Districts; application for Leases approved (under The Land Act, 1884), Grazing Licences, applications Not Granted under the Land Acts, Register of Medical Practitioners for 1886, Estates of Deceased Persons – in the Supreme Court of Victoria, Names of Pupil Teachers and Sewing Mistresses, Candidates who passed the examination of the non-clerical division of the Public Service Board, Government Auditors of Municipal Accounts, Land Tax Register 1886, and the establishment of a new public cemetery at Chiltern.
