So you've heard of Government Gazettes ... but do you really know what they are? In short, the Government Gazettes were issued weekly (although there were extra issues produced as well from time to time), that contain fascinating information, both historical and genealogical.
Information such as land transactions, legal notices, insolvency and bankrupt notices, ecclesiastical and next of kin notices, impoundments, private notices, patent applications, absconders and deserters, as well as missing people, shipping and emigration notices, partnerships, licences, contracts, government institutions and positions, statistics and much more. If you've got an interest in Victoria during this period - you're bound to find something of interest.
Government Gazettes are a much underused source, partly because of their availability (you would usually only find them in select archive offices or libraries), and partly because people don't know about them. Now that these are on CD-ROM, everyone has access to this amazing resource.
This set of three enormous volumes which totals over 4500 pages, has now been digitised and released on fully searchable CD-ROM, and contains all issues that were released in Victoria for the year 1889.
