1857 Geelong & District entries from Vic Gov Gazette

100s of entries for our region have been extracted from the 1857 Victoria Government Gazette and are now in our Geelong & District Database

Place Names in Vic BDM Indexes

This topic began as a local Geelong and District issue however it was obviously relevant to all of Victoria.

There are a multitude of web sites that give you lists of the infamous abbreviations of Place Names in the Victorian BDM Indexes however there are far too many places with similar names that could fit the abbreviation to make it more than guess work.

The tips and examples in this Place Names in Vic BDM Indexes web page can take most of the guesswork out of the puzzle.

At this stage I believe the cut-off date for using this method is about 1964 – when BDM registration became fully centralised and entries were no longer added in groups from each registration district across the state – more work needed to confirm this!
