Navigating PROV: Family History Tips and Tools May 24th

Expiry Date
05 November, 2023

As the repository of Victorian Local and State Government records, the Public Record Office of Victoria (PROV) has accumulated over 100km worth of records. Naturally, accessing such a wealth of materials can feel intimidating.

May's session of Family History Tips & Tools will focus on PROV and accessing its resources. There will be short presentations giving an outline of PROV's holdings and systems and tips for navigating their website and catalogue. We will model locating and ordering specific records and leave plenty of time for questions and discussion.

If you have questions you would like answered in this session consider sending them to us in advance.  If you have an example you would like to share of how you have used PROV's resources, we would love to have you join in. Please let us know via
