About this video

Charlie Farrugia presents on World War I records at the Public Record Office of Victoria (PROV), including those pertaining to the Victorian soldier settlement scheme.

Charlie flags that people don’t realise that PROV has a very strong selection of photographic records. These are records created by various Victoria government departments or statutory authorities. 'You’d be surprised at what you would find in them. If you are prepared to dig... what you can find sometimes is quite remarkable'.

This lecture was presented as part of the 2013 Family History Feast.


Charlie Farrugia is a senior collections advisor at the Public Records Office of Victoria.
