    How do I find an electronic copy of a map of Victoria, say around 1853? In particular covering the north west of the state.

    Do you have early records for the SEC (State Electricity), particularly employees records?
    If so, how would I be able to access them?

    Do you have a ‘PROV how to guide’ on the subject of mining? I imagine this could (or should) include research topics such as gold mining and mining companies etc
