If you search the online Vic bdm's using just BAKER, births and mother's maiden surname SINGLE you should get a message

You may view 10 matching records as 1 separate pages.

I use  minimum info when searching their database.  Use to frustrate me endlessly.

Thankyou Cando!

Why wouldn't I be able to trace these through Victorian Department of Justice? How do I obtain the full birth certificates if I can't trace them there? Do the registered numbers only pertain to Indexes, or are they the Registered birth numbers?

Thanks again for your help. I reall appreciate your time and assistance.

Use minumum info when searching....detailed in reply#19.

You may purchase online either an image of the registration of the full birth registration which would be mailed to you.  The image is a cheaper option at $17.50.
https://online.justice.vic.gov.au/bdm/index-search?action=purchaseImage

For family history purposes I consider the downloaded image of the registration is sufficient. 

The numbers are the registered birth numbers on both the online database and indexes on CD.  You need this number to purchase online.

Good luck ;D

Thanks Cando,

I have downloaded previously from the site, but for some reason my searches in this instance comes up with 0 nothing?  I think this site might have a few glitches. I seem to recall having trouble on previous occasions.  I shall keep trying.

Thanks again,
Ulysses

Yes agree it can be frustrating, however I did a search this am before posting the birth info and as I detailed previously this is the message I received on the site as a search result

Thanks Cando,

I managed to download 2 certificates, the first child, Charles Levi b. 1864, indicates father born Sydney, NSW.

Emily, b. 1875 Lockwood (my ancestor), also indicates Sydney NSW. No other clues.

I don't think I can afford to keep going if it's going to give me the same answer.

If nothing else, at least now I  know their first child Charles levi was born, Pleasant Creek Road, Ararat 1864. Occupation, splitter? I assume this would be log splitter?

This might lead to something... could chase up in Ararat or Stawell.

The website seems to be very hit or miss, very frustrating! 

You would think if they had 10 living children, there would be someone else out there chasing them up?

Cheers,
Ulysses

Hi Ulysses,

I think your thoughts about Log splitter may be perhaps right, perhaps for splitting timber for the sawing up of underground mines and etc in that part of Victoria. 

Re your comments about "someone else out there chasing them up", umm, sometimes their male descendants enlisted and never made it back to Oz, and also I understand that it is only in recent times that equal consideration has been given to genie tree searches on both maternal and paternal lines, apparently even in 1970's and 80's it was more important to get the "pedigree" for the paternal line only.   Hope I am not perpetuating an urban myth about that.

Cheers,  MA
