If you had family living in South Australia in the latter 1890s, have you thought of looking at the Police Gazettes for information? These are a 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.

Issued weekly, this CD-ROM is a compilation of all 52 regular issues of the South Australia Police Gazette that were issued during 1898. Each issue is usually four pages long, and contains information such as court lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Service, lists of arrests and discharges (which include personal descriptions), escaped prisoners, and missing persons. Inquest verdicts, deserting wives, lost or stolen items are also included. Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often listed.

Example entries all taken from the 14 December 1898 issue:
Lost or Stolen
On the 2nd instant, between Grenfell and Rundle Streets, Adelaide, a 15-carat gold arrow-shaped brooch, set with opal, the property of Ruby McLean; identifiable.-(C.2513)

On the 1st instant, during the night, from a paddock at the Glynde and near the hotel, a helf-bred Alderney cow, mouse color, with black points, no brands, the property of Samuel T. Hipwell; identifiable.-(C.2521)
