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 5000 pages, 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 of interest in the 1896 Gazette are: Occupants of Crown Lands who have not paid Rents and Fees due, list of employees of Post Master General, list of permanent employees of the Victorian Railways, Roll of Merchants and Traders, Roll of Ship-Owners, Contracts for the conveyance of inland mails, Licensed Surveyors, and Triennial Elections of Boards of Advice for schools.
