If you had family living in South Australia in 1907, have you thought of looking at the Police Gazettes for information? An unusual source of information, these are not only unique in the type of information that they contain, but they are a goldmine of useful information for genealogists. Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else.
This CD-ROM is a compilation of all 52 issues of the South Australian Police Gazette that were produced during 1907. Each issue is about four pages in length, 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 physical descriptions on the persons), escaped prisoners, and missing persons ... even lost and found items. Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.
