The Gazette Online

The Gazette (formerly London Gazette) is an official publication that has recorded a wide variety of factual information since 1665. It features notices placed by public bodies and also by individuals and companies.

The recently launched online version gives access to over 2.4 million items on a wide range of subjects including official honours, bankruptcy, military and civilian awards. More than 400,000 will and probate notices are included. My searches of the site unearthed 19th century as well as more recent announcements.

A short YouTube video gives an overview of the history of the publication and what it offers in its 21st century reincarnation.
