New database to search

I’ve combined the five major databases and numerous smaller ones into a single searchable database but with the flexibility to narrow the search by Groups [which generally equate to former databases] and Index Titles [sub groups within the database or items such as Book Titles].

There are more than 800,000 entries but don’t forget to read the tips, warnings and information section to get the most out of your search.

Try it out!

Where is Geelong and District?

It is in Victoria, Australia.

The boundaries are not rigid but basically cover an arc from the Otways up to a little south of Ballarat, across to Werribee and all points to the south east of that area.

The region is rich in history and played a major part in the early history of Victoria.
There are numerous local and family history societies and museums that are a wonderful resource for anyone researching in our region.
The Geelong & District web site will help you with that research.
