Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    This series consists of the registers from which file numbers for Probate and Administration grants were allocated.

    Details include record number, name of deceased, area of residence, occupation, date of death, value of property, page in the Transcriptions of Wills [also known as Register of Wills] (VPRS 27/VPRS 525 - microfilm), nature of grant, date of grant and issue, and to whom committed, and proctor's name.

    Entries are arranged chronologically by date of grant of an application within alphabetical sections (according to the surname of the deceased). Record numbers are allocated progressively in "series" of 1000.

    Although these registers may have originally been used to allocate file numbers and as a control record for Wills (VPRS 7591), Probate and Administration Papers (VPRS 28) and entries in the Register of Wills (VPRS 27, VPRS 525 microfilm), researchers should now consult Probate Index Victoria (1841-1992) microfiche for access to these series. These volumes appear to be the earliest volumes of "Issues Books" held at the Probate Office.
