Getting started with Victorian research
Numerous articles are available on FamilySearch Wiki to help you get started in family history. This portal will provide links to articles about general research topics.
In Victoria there are 79 councils that provide local government for a specific geographical area within the State. These local councils are considered a separate tier of government in addition to Federal and State governments.
The State Library of Victoria has published several family history research guides covering adoption, beginners, ships, WW1 soldiers and more.
