The new VIC archives really sucks :mad:
Yes, very difficult to narrow down the search.

I tried to look for a probate and got over 1000 hits.

This family connects to my tree in two places so I'd better expand the tree by adding one more generation.

I'll return to this after I've added the next generation and moved all the detail notes to their new place.
