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 5,100 pages, the 1897 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 1897 Gazette are: Contracts for the supply of forage, Land Tax Register and Valuation for Victoria, Classified Roll of State School Teachers, list of Licensed Surveyors, lists of Auctioneers’ General Licenses, a notice regarding the Salt Junk Mining Company, appointments of Visiting Chaplains to Gaols, Roll of Merchants and Traders, Roll of Underwriters, Roll of Ship Owners, Roll of Pilots, Roll of Engineers, Roll of Masters and Roll of Seamen.
