Geelong gaol
« on: Monday 10 October 16 00:36 BST (UK) »
Hi

I believe an ancestor of mine had a short spell in the Geelong Gaol. He was charged with vagrancy. I have not been able to find any documents related to this. I know he was there because I found newspaper articles. Are there records from 1892 Geelong Gaol available? If so how do I go about finding them?

1892 seems to be missing. I had looked at Public Records but I have so much trouble figuring out what it means and where to look. :-[
