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 4,500 pages, the 1895 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 1895 Gazette are: The Income Tax Act 1895, Mining Leases Declared Void, Licences to Distil, List of Persons Employed in the Public Service, Visiting Chaplains to Gaols, Treaty of Commerce and Navigation between Great Britain and Japan, Mining Leases, Roll of Merchants and Traders, Roll of Underwriters, Roll of Pilots, Roll of Engineers, Roll of Masters and Roll of Seamen.
