Description

Do you love history?

Public Record Office Victoria is the archives of the State Government of Victoria. We hold more than 100kms of records from the mid 1830s to today, which we manage for use by the Government and people of Victoria. Our vast Collection includes memories of events and decisions great and small that have shaped the history of the Colony and State of Victoria, as well as records of immigration and shipping, criminal trials and prisons, premiers and governors, royal commissions, boards of inquiry, wills and probates and more.

On the 12th of July we're visiting Geelong with the members of our Public Records Advisory Council. And while we're here we'd love to meet you!

Join us for a morning of fascinating discoveries as we share our work with you:

10.30am
Explore the collection and website
What's in PROV's collection, and how can you start exploring it? Join Jack Martin for a brief outline of the collection and how to make the most of it using PROV's new website - including researching land and property or your own house, court records, education records, council records, photographs, employment records and all of the key records for family history research.

11.15am
Morning Tea

11.45am
How do I find that record?
Now that you know what's in the collection, how do you find the specific record you're looking for? Daniel Wilksch will talk you through all of the new search capabilities of PROV's new website. This will be an interactive session focussing on Geelong-area records.

12.30pm
Finish
