Public Record Office Victoria is the archives of the State Government of Victoria, Australia. 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.
PROV has in recent months taken the decision to migrate content from its online exhibitions and other sources to the PROV wiki (now a semantic wiki!)
The wiki is fast becoming a digital repository and a metadata database that can be queried both internally and externally. Over the coming months PROV will be adding functionality to the wiki that will allow users to:
1)Transcribe primary records 2)Geo-reference historic maps 3)Tag content 4)Easily share content
