Government and Police Gazettes can not only help you find the detail of the lives of your ancestors; they can also help you solve those puzzles.

Government Gazettes contain details of laws and regulations that affected the general population, land transactions, unclaimed mail, assigned convicts, government employees court notices, and much more. Police Gazettes contain the victims as well as the perpetrators of crimes, missing persons, police appointments, details of publicans' licenses, escaped convicts and other prisoners, and more. 

This talk will demonstrate the wealth of material that can be found in these wonderful resources, with examples of problems solved from my own client research.
