anyone going to (PROV)Public Record Office Victoria
Hi, I found that the record I am looking for can actually be accessed in PROV, but being in NZ it's a bit far for me to go. Is anyone in Melbourne planning a visit there sometime? I'm not sure if there are costs involved but I would obviously be willing to pay any expenses.
The records I am after are in the
"Children’s Registers of State Wards in Victoria, Australia between 1850 and 1893"
volume no. OS3, page no. 234.
I'm looking for a Richard Johnston who claims he was born in Melbourne in 1862, father John. The only record that has come close to this is an entry in the
"Children’s Registers of State Wards in Victoria, Australia between 1850 and 1893" indexes which lists a Richard Johnston born 1861. The same records also have a
John Johnston born 1859 which I think could be Richard's brother. The reference for them both is volume no. OS3, page no. 234.
I think their mother might be Sarah, who died in 1863, so maybe the boys were put into an institution - just guessing here.
Is there anyone who could help with this? Thanks
