COMPLETED: Place of birth on a Victorian birth record
« on: Sunday 14 January 18 01:57 GMT (UK) »
I have a birth record that has the place listed as PRNHURST.

Can anyone help with where this place is.

I don't want to buy the full birth certificate as I know all about this lady except where she was born.

Thanks for reading, thanks in advance for helping,

Cheers Ted

Thank you so much for the link Floozy.

There are a few trees on the net with it assumed to be Penshurst, but looking at where the rest of the family were born it didn't make much sense.

First 2 were born in Christchurch NZ, then next one born in Montrose Victoria, then there is my girl born "Prnhust", then then 6 born in Ballarat.

Oh well, I will keep thinking.

Cheers, Ted

Hi
Please provide the name of the person and the year of the birth so the entry you have can be checked against other offline resources. May help clarification.

Good suggestion Sue.

You could also check the person's death registration on Vic BDM as many now show the place of birth.
