Government Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Australia. They are published by governments and their agencies as a means of communication to officials and to the general public. Gazettes therefore contain a range of valuable and interesting content such as the following list of information:

  • assessment rolls
  • acts of parliament
  • lists of midwives, marriage celebrants, dentists and more
  • government appointments, resignations and transfers, including Justices of the Peace and returning officers
  • government departments
  • hotel licences
  • insolvents
  • land acquisitions, rentals, sales and leases
  • mining leases
  • petitions

The Archive CD Books Project exists to make reproductions of old books, documents and maps available on CD to genealogists and historians, and to cooperate with local libraries, museums and record offices in providing money to renovate old books in their collection, and to donate books to their collections, where they will be preserved for future generations.
