Find your ancestors in Queensland Education Gazette 1950

If you're looking for anyone that was a teacher in Queensland - try looking in the Queensland Education Gazettes. The primary role of education gazettes was to provide instructions and information to the staff of government schools, and each year they list thousands of names of those who took positions, transfered or left the service throughout the year.

Gazettes are published by governments and their agencies as a means of communication to officials and the general public. As such they are useful, not only to monitor the actions of the government, but also as far as family historians are concerned, they are valuable primary source documents.

You will find individual teachers and staff named in sections headed:

staff deployment: admissions, transfers, left the service
tenderers for works accepted
teachers college students
winners of scholarships and bursaries
