    3. I'm in regional NSW and would appreciate advice on how to access the crew list for the Epsom, arrived April, 1855. I would like to confirm if someone was a crew member and, if so, was he was paid off in Geelong or if he jumped ship. Thank you Barbara

    3. I'd already seen the Ships' Crew Records page, but it says Reading Room Access only. A visit to Melbourne is unfortunately out of the question for me. But many thanks for your input. Cheers Barbara

    2.  Hello Barbara,For those who can't make it to Melbourne there is an excellent private service for accessing the archives held at PROV.  I'll send the link privately to your email as I'm pretty sure it's not OK to 'talk business' on Mailing Lists.The Epsom Passenger List is available to view online at PROV, which could determine if he was a crew member. I found my man on their Register of Deserters then his Reward Notice in the Geelong Advertiser on TROVE.Another super resource is the Geelong & District Database.http://zades.com.au/gandd/index.php/databases/gddbsHappy hunting from Pauline ----- Original Message ----- From: "History and people of Geelong and District Victoria Australia" To:"History and people of Geelong and District Victoria Australia" Cc: Sent:Thu, 15 Mar 2018 14:33:40 +1100 Subject:[GEELONG] Re: Ships' Crew Lists Advice Please I'd already seen the Ships' Crew Records page, but it says Reading Room Access only.

    3. Hi Pauline & Barbara, Normally discussion on commercial businesses is frowned upon on Rootsweb Mailing Lists but in this case I really don't have a problem - I think you're referring to Archival Access. I know Mark and he provides a terrific service, lives in the country, and isn't out to make a fortune from people! Mark sends out a Newsletter of 'new' records he has been working on and doesn't even add a link to his web site in that newsletter! Anyway his web site is http://www.archivalaccessvictoria.com/ And I'm happy for anyone to use his services but would encourage you to send a copy to me so I can transcribe / index them and add them to the Geelong and District Database! Email to szada@zades.com.au or the link to the database - usually at the bottom of this message. If they're large, email me and we can work something out. VPRS 22 is one of the record series I have on my list to photograph and index! Another couple of places to look which might prove helpful - Victoria Government Gazette - I use this site which I find best for searching and downloading - http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/other/vic_gazette/ Also check the newspapers - particularly the Geelong Advertiser. All the best ...

    3. Just a note of interest, last weekend a gathering of Judd Cousins was held at Mt Moriac. This was the grandchildren of Frederick William & Frances Ann (Holmes) JUDD who did farm at Mt Moriac and later lived at Belmont. Frederick William was the son of Peter Ezekiel JUDD who spent a significant amount of time in Geelong and was the Mayor at one time.
