hi. heather and I are still trying to find violet Elston birth details, I am wondering if you know where an unwed woman would have gone to have her baby in 1910 somewhere between colac and adelaide

Hi

I would suggest Melbourne would be much closer to Colac?  Lots of unwed mothers went to Carlton Women's Hospital.
