If you had family in Tasmania in the early 1900s, be sure to check out the Police gazettes, as they provided information and instructions to members of the police force, which means you can find information here, that you can't find anywhere else.

  • disciplining of police
  • escapees and absconders from custody
  • housebreakers and burglars
  • licensed carriers, hawkers, oyster fishers, and tanners
  • deserting wives, families, etc
  • deserting from military service
  • deserting from merchant vessels
  • inquests
  • missing friends
  • murderers and their victims
  • police resignations
  • prisoners discharged from gaols and released on tickets of leave
