The Government Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Australia.
 

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 the colony of Port Phillip and its people in the past.

The Port Phillip region was explored by Europeans in 1802-03, and after an early attempt at settlement in 1804, was left undisturbed until 1835, when John Batman and John Pascoe Fawkner established Melbourne. The 'Port Phillip Government Notices' commenced in 4 January 1843, and by January 1844 it was renamed to 'Port Phillip Government Gazette'.

This was a precursor to the Victoria Government Gazette, and offers similar information to them. Note: Until its establishment as a separate colony in 1851 the area now known as Victoria was a part of New South Wales and was generally referred to as the Port Phillip district.

Released once a week, most issues are between 6-10 pages in length, and contain a host of fascinating information such as lists of unclaimed letters at the Melbourne Post Office, land transactions, proclamations, legal notices, notice of acts, impoundments, partnerships, contracts, government institutions and positions, statistics, plenty of convict information as well and much more. It covers a broad spectrum of the community with important details and facts on thousands of people.

This product provides a great tool for researching Port Phillip (early Victorian) history, making information that is difficult to find easily accessible on one CD.

This ebook is a the same as the CD version from Archive Digital Books Australasia which is available from Gould Genealogy & other retailers. This CD contains high quality scanned images of the whole original volume, and has been bookmarked for easy navigation.
