An amazing resource, the Government Gazettes are a unique source for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Australia.

Usually published weekly, 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 5,600 pages, the 1907 gazette includes information relating to a wide variety of topics – of interest to both genealogists and historians:

    • Auditors – list of persons authorised to act as Auditors for Companies
    • Business partnerships – both the creation and dissolution
    • Certificates of competency (under Marine Act)
    • Classified Roll of State School teachers
    • Contracts accepted – (supply of forage, supply of provisions, general stores for Public Service)
    • Estates of deceased persons
    • Government appointments and general notices
    • Insolvencies
    • Land Tax Register and Valuation for Victoria
    • List of Licensed Surveyors
    • Mining companies and leases granted; shareholders of mining companies
    • Ministers of religion registered to celebrate marriages
    • Patents and trademarks
    • Pharmaceutical Register for 1907
    • Register of Medical Practitioners and Dentists for 1907
    • Public Service list of employees
