Project Instructions This collection contains gazettes published weekly in New South Wales, Australia that include Acts of Parliament, land transactions, criminal notices, will and probate notices, military desertions, government appointments, missing people and more.

Similar to newspaper articles, keying this project will require some reading in order to extract the desired fields. Only key data from articles when at least one name is present. If a name appears multiple times, only key the name once. Sometimes, especially in escaped prisoner or convict notices, known aliases will be listed. Key up to two aliases per individual (the first two).

You will likely encounter multiple event types, but all images with names to be keyed should be classified as "Gazette Page With Names".

Project-specific sample images and form field help:
