Event description

Description

Do you love history?

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 25th of October we’re visiting Sale 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 - 11.15am 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 - including land and property records, court records, education, council, photographs, employment and all of the key records for family history research.

11.15am - 11.45am Morning Tea

11.45am - 12.30pm 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? Kate Follington will talk you through all of the new search capabilities of PROV’s new website. This will be an interactive session focussing on the Gippsland-area.
