  • It’s ALWAYS free to search
  • That offer doesn’t end after Australia Day!

The Geelong & District Database now contains more than 1,689,267 entries from more than 9,811 sources!

  1. Hi Sharon – make sure you click on VIEW for EVERY record then click on MORE INFORMATION then READ all the details – they are different for all the different types of indexes. You might find there is no more information, or it is online and you can click on the link, or it is at one of the family or local history societies in the region, or it may be at the Public Record Office Victoria. And don’t make the mistake that I’m a society! I’m an individual who has compiled this database and the web site!

  2. Thankyou Susie for all the hard work you do. I think youre site if fantastic
    . I have a tree on ancestry but i dont subscibe to them. Everytime i go to look at ancestry’s free days i can see that there is a record that i wish to look at , then when i click on it , it takes me straight to a sign up and pay subscription page. so they stretch the truth a fair bit .
    I will be staying with you as i think this is great to be able to see the records that i need , when i find one thats mine . you allow me to look at records that may not be mine and i can disreguard them.
    Thanks So Much Susie
    Best Wishes
    Chris
