A valuable resource for anyone one researching those in South Australia during 1871 and 1872. It is also a useful tool for social historians.
 

An amazing source of genealogical and historical information, the Police Gazettes have been a relatively untouched resource, partly because of accessibility and partly because they weren't generally known as a key source. Now that they are being released on searchable CD-ROM, they are available for all to use.

Anyone researching their family will have a 'lost' family member or two! You may well find them listed here, on either side of the law. Maybe they were a policeman who transferred to another department or division, or someone who was a victim of crime. You can find the physical details on persons listed here, missing, wanted or released, which helps to paint a picture of them (name, aliases used, age, height, colour hair, colour eyes, distinguishing features, even colour clothing worn).

This CD contains the complete issues released during 1871 and 1872, and contains information on housebreak-ins, robberies, arson, murders, lost horses and cattle, inquest verdicts, escaped prisoners and reports on those released. Also included are court lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Service, lists of arrests, escaped prisoners, and missing persons, men deserting their wives and children as well as deserters from service, missing friends and more ... Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.
