If you had family living in Queensland in 1883, have you thought of looking in Police Gazettes for information? These are a truly unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians.

Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else. Apart from any changes within the police force which are all listed (promotions, demotions, dismissals, deaths etc), information is also given on housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, deserters, escaped prisoners, reports on those released, even deaths reported to the police (together with their place of death and cause of death given). Notices from interstate police gazettes are sometimes included.

A fascinating read for learning about the social history of the time, even if you don't have family there - this CD contains all issues that were produced for the years 1883.

Unique features of this particular year's worth of issues is that they contain the following:

  • lists of Justices of the Peace in New South Wales and Queensland
  • lists of Medical Practitioners
  • lists of Chemists and Druggists
  • lists of Ministers of Religion (authorised to celebrate marriages in the colony)
  • also listings of those who have licences for auctionering, distilling, billiards, retail spirit dealing, and the transfer of publican licence
