The Society is unfortunately not in a position to provide researchers with physical access to its collection. A small online indexed component of our records is available as part of the "Victorian Local History database
" compiled by the Royal Historical Society of Victoria
Recently an online copy of our Indexes has been made available to our staff at Specimen Cottage. This can be used as a starting point along with other resources at the cottage, for members of the public to make a research request
. Research request forms are available at Specimen Cottage.
In response to a written or email request for information, the Society will attempt to provide such information or refer the enquirer to a more appropriate source.
Costs for topics being researched are:
One name single event lookup - $10.00 for a written report
Research requiring about one hour - $40.00 for search and for a written report (Pro-rata)
Photographs - $10.00 per photograph copied to disc; plus $2.00 P&H
If the topic being researched is something that the Society feels that it can respond to then it will reply with a quote estimate, based on a Research Rate of $40 per hour. No research (except an onward referral to another source) will be conducted without the advance payment as per the quote.
