Government Gazettes in general contain a vast amount of historical and genealogical information. However they are largely an untapped resource. The few complete runs that are available are usually only found in major libraries. And even for researchers who do have access to these the sheer size and extent of the Gazettes is daunting.

Now that is all changing - with the publication of the gazettes on affordable and searchable form on CD-ROM. Tens of thousands of ordinary people and localities, small and large, are mentioned EVERY YEAR in Government Gazettes. But they offer researchers much more than simply names and places. They will help you reconstruct events and circumstances in the life of individuals and communities.

Information such as list following can often be found in most Gazettes: land sales, government appointments, lost stock, unclaimed letters, police reports, desertions, ships arrivals, insolvency notices, permits, licences and certificates (liquor, firewood, stone gravel and wood, depasturing, dogs, vehicles, drays, cow keepers, milksellers, marriage celebrants, publicans, auctioneers just to name a few), even petitions (with names) and trademark applications... and the list could go on and on.

The whole of the two volumes (which total over 2300 pages) is searchable. Search for any word in the text - names, places and more.

"I'm totally in awe of the potential of the Government Gazette project ... the accessibility, ease of use ... having done the hard slog through many original volumes" - Greg Slattery, South Australian historian
