What is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]

These records include newspaper records from 1833-1925. The Government Gazette was an official publication of the government of Tasmania. The Gazette served the early colony much like a newspaper, and contained information on such things as shipping, private property sales and leases, and listings of convicts. By the 1870s, names of owners and occupiers of properties were listed.

The publication also includes some estates of the deceased, unclaimed letters in the general post office, shareholders in various companies, appointments of various officials, notices of courts to be convened, and valuation rolls, which list the owners and occupiers of property.
