Queensland Government Gazette 1867. 1867. Government Gazettes contain a vast amount of historical and genealogical information. However they are largely an untapped resource. The few complete runs that are available are usually only found in major libraries.
And even for researchers who do have access to these the sheer size and extent of the Gazettes is daunting. Now that is all changing - with the publication of the gazettes as affordable and fully searchable facsimiles of the originals. Tens of thousands of ordinary people and localities, small and large, are mentioned every year in Government Gazettes. But they offer researchers much more than simply names and places. They will help you reconstruct events and circumstances in the life of individuals and communities. Features in this year's issues are: lists of medical practitioners lists of timber licences lands open to selection lists of unclaimed letters rents due under the Leasing Act lists of the ministers of religion who can perform marriage ceremonies With over 1600 pages in this publication, this is a vast resource for local, family and social historians.
