PROV Records Issued (through the Reading Room to the public)

Public Record Office Victoria is the archives of the State Government of Victoria. We hold approximately 100kms of records from the mid 1830s to today, which we manage for use by the Government and people of Victoria.

The Collection includes memories of events and decisions great and small that have shaped the history of the Colony and State of Victoria, as well as records of immigration and shipping, criminal trials and prisons, premiers and governors, royal commissions, boards of inquiry, wills and probates and more.

The Public are able to order records online and then visit the Public Reading Room at the Victorian Archives Centre to view the records that are retrieved from the repository by PROV staff. Increasing numbers of records are being digitised so that records can be both ordered and viewed online however to date, 99% of Victorian State Government historical records are only available in original format.
