The 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.

A massive volume of over 5,200 pages, the 1893 gazette includes 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 of interest in the 1893 Gazette are: Public Service Board list of employees, Land Tax Register and Valuation for Victoria, Roll of Merchants and Traders, Roll of Ship-Owners, Applications for Mining Leases, Trustees of Cemeteries, Contracts Accepted for the Supply of Forage, and Occupants of Crown Lands – Notices to Licensees and Lessees in Arrear.

Example entry:
