Digitising Country Victoria Records

A new project to digitise records held by the Victorian Archives (PROV) is being undertaken by Archival Access Victoria. The plan is to make country Victorian records available to those who need them most and are probably the furthest away from Melbourne where the records are kept. They will start with the town of Wodonga, on the New South Wales and Victorian border, digitising the court records from the Wodonga Magistrates Court that date from the early 1900s through to the 1970s. The project will then extend to other towns in country Victoria. To help this undertaking Archival Access Victoria has created a pledge page which allows you to donate or pledge money to their project. Anyone contributing financially to the project will receive their own digital copy of the records, as unfortunately these records will NOT be available on line and people wanting copies of the information will have to pay for the records, which will be made available to them on DVD for as little as $10. If you would like to know more or make a pledge go to
