Find your ancestors in Queensland Government Gazette 1876

Government Gazettes are a much underused source, partly because of their availability (you would usually only find them select archives offices or libraries), and partly because people don't know about them.

The Government Gazettes were weekly newspapers (although there were extra issues produced as well), and this contains all issues that were released for the year 1876. Full of fascinating information, both historical and genealogical, you will find information such as government notices, public works notices, land sales, tenders notices, appointees to government positions, appointments of magistrates and Justices of the Peace, crown land leases, deceased estates, dissolution of business partnerships, bankruptcy and insolvency, notices or rewards for lost or stolen property and stock, unclaimed letters, unclaimed property (railways) and so much more.

If you've got an interest in Queensland during this period - you're bound to find something of interest.
