Hi Sue. I have been trying to find out more about the Barton of Marysville. They were early settlers there and had a general store which was later run by Frank Barton. I cannot find any birth or death records of his although his siblings were born there in the late 1800s. Any info wold be helpful. Thanks Tony
I will have a look for you tomorrow.

Hi Sue,

I am having trouble getting any information about births, deaths, marriages and census records in Victoria.

Thanks for your offer of help. Any tips would be helpful to me.

Susan, who are you looking for in the BDM's for Victoria? I've got the death index to 1985 and the marriage to 1942. Births up to about 1920. Some of these are also on Ancestry.com.au but don't seem to be as complete as the disks which I've got.

There are no 20th century census records for Australia; the only thing is the electoral rolls to 1980 except for South Australia and early New South Wales. The census wasn't kept after being summarised. They are available on Ancestry.com.au (needs a world-wide or Australian suscription).

I have some people on my watchlist who spent at least some time in Victoria, and they're not sourced as well as I'd like. Sidney Herbert Slade is one, and his brother Walter Goodall Slade is another. I know about some wives and children (although there could be more that I haven't found yet), but I've got nothing on the in-laws.
