So you've heard of Government Gazettes ... but do you really know what they are? Government Gazettes, which were generally issued weekly, contain fascinating information, both historical and genealogical.

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

Some significant lists for 1889 include:

  • Register of Medical Practitioners
  • Dentists' Register
  • Prospecting Boards - members
  • Rolls of Electors Rectified (corrections)
  • Rolls of Merchants, Traders, Shipowners, seamen, etc
  • Estates of Deceased Persons
  • Land Tax Register & Valuation
  • Occupants of Crown Lands - rent in arrears
  • Lease applications, renewals, transfers etc
     ... plus numerous other lists

Government Gazettes are a much underused source, partly because of their availability (usually only found in select archive offices or libraries), and partly because of their sheer bulk. Now that these are CD-ROM, everyone has access to this amazing resource.

This set of three large volumes, which totals over 4600 pages, has now been digitised and released on fully searchable CD-ROM, and contains all issues that were released in Victoria for the year 1889.

Any computer using Adobe (Acrobat) Reader 4 or later
Adobe Reader 6 or later is recommended for CDs with searchable text
