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

Issued weekly with occasional special issues, the South Australian Government Gazettes contain information such as proclamations, land transactions, court notices, notice of acts, public notices, tenders contracts, appointments and resignations, bankrupt and insolvency notices, impoundments, police auctions, unclaimed letters, storekeepers and publicans licences, rewards on offer, inquest verdicts and more ...

Issued weekly, the Government Gazettes contain many thousands of names and places mentioned every year, and contain information from a whole cross section of the community.  This product provides a great tool for researching the history of South Australia, making information that is difficult to find, easily accessible on one CD.
