80 pages including bibliography. There has been a burgeoning interest in tracing family origins over the last few years, a trend which will, no doubt, increase as Australia approaches its bi-centenary. Victoria, known as the Port Phillip District of the Colony of New South Wales from its settlement until separation in July 1851, will be celebrating its 150th anniversary in 198A-5. It is therefore very timely that this useful booklet should be published as a guide to those involved in biographical research, genealogy and local history. There are a number of published guides to genealogical and local history resources but none which comprehensively covers all the major repositories in the State of Victoria. The members of the Custodians‘ group are to be congratulated on their co-operative effort of gathering information on the types of records which have survived and which are now held in various government departments and other locations. This booklet is not designed as a step-by-step guide to genealogical and local history research, but is commended as an invaluable survey of the records that are available, their location and how to gain access to them.
