Do you have Tasmanian ancestry?

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. Included here are four volumes of the Hobart Gazette: 1903, 1904, 1905 and 1906.

"What information can I find in these gazettes?"

  • Acts of parliament

  • Government appointments, resignations and transfers, including: Justices of the Peace and returning officers

  • Government departments

  • Insolvents

  • Land acquisitions, rentals, sales and leases

  • Mining and minerals

  • Petitions

They're a great genealogy resource for anyone exploring their Tasmanian family history or building a family tree - as well as being perfect for social historians researching the Hobart area.
