Why does it seem so simple to research my family in NSW in bdm and it seems to difficult to do the same in Victoria ?

NSW has their BMD Index online. Victoria does not.

Thanks Aleeyne. It took me long enough to navigate through NSW BMD (not really computer literate). For a long time I thought the difficulty was all me with Victoria. Should have known from the start.

Victoria has BDM online. It can be accessed via this link.

I am having trouble tracing ancestry in Victoria too. 1820s Victoria when we came under NSW jurisdiction. Slow and steady wins the race.

Thank you Natvic for the extra info. I now know that Vic BDM is on line, but is it free to do our own lookup and then when you know what you want, order the certificate. That is where I stumbled with doing a bit of my own research.
