The AUS-VIC-GIPPSLAND Mailing list covers the shires of Baw Baw, Bass Coast, Cardinia, East Gippsland, La Trobe, South Gippsland and Wellington, .
At this stage only the Resources and Records for the Wellington and East Gippsland shires are given here, and South Gippsland is 'under construction'. If anyone wishes to 'adopt a shire' with an aim of putting information on this site, they should e-mail us directly at email@example.com
As time permits, at least a basic structure of family history groups and historical societies will be listed for the other shires, so any up-to-date details are welcome.
When we write here about Resources and Records, it means both records that are here, and pointers to records that can be found elsewhere, via the internet and by snail mail and personal enquiry.
The pages attached to this site are:
Overview: Wellington and East Gippsland is a listing of types of records on other pages. It may provide useful ideas for those researching in other shires, and contains general notes on:

The following pages are maps of the individual shires showing most of the towns. Please
note that in order to make them legible, they are reasonably high resolution, and as
such will take some 30-60 seconds to download, and if viewed in a browser are much larger
than the screen, and will require the user to scroll to see other parts of the map.
