VIC Birth, Marriages & Deaths
« on: Friday 15 October 21 04:07 BST (UK) »
While I can search Births and Deaths, the Marriage search results (well withing the period allowed) comes up with:-
"Your search did not produce any results. Please refine your search and try again"

Is anyone else having the same problem?

I even tried a search that I've found in the past for a marriage in 1920 with the same result.
Clarence, England then Australia from 1912.
Copeland, England.
Lascelles / Lovett / Stevens, England.
Langford, England (Reading and Southampton).
Kipp / Rigbye / Randall, Germany then Victoria, Australia from 1849.
Boothman / Clifford / Marsden / Johnston in Australia

Try searching for a famous Victorian .... e.g. Robert Gordon MENZIES ... He was born in Vic.  If he's not there, then it's ummm .... o-o-o.

Quite bizarrely it is only hitting for a surname (eg Wilson or Jones or Brown etc) if the spouse's surname was also Wilson or Jones or Brown etc

It does not matter whether you put in a surname for spouse or not, that is what it displays! ::)

I believe that there is an I T problem with Victorian Marriages and that it is being worked on.
We can but hope it is remedied soon  :(

I noticed there was a problem with searching marriages several days ago, after trying several names, one being Jeffs, I figured it would get fixed sooner or later.

Mick
Jeffs - Northamptonshire to Leicestershire to Queensland, Australia
Lewis - Wales to Gloucestershire to NSW & Queensland, Australia
Iddols & Baylis - Gloucestershire
Mary Jones, daughter of James Jones and Eliza - born abt 1864 Staffordshire, died 1948 Queensland, Australia
Dorans - Ireland to Scotland to Queensland, Australia
Ralph - Ireland to Scotland to Queensland, Australia
Reedy - Ireland to NSW & Queensland, Australia
Bradbury (False name?) - Oxfordshire to Queensland, Australia

I got a reply from an email pointing out the problem.

Hi, Thank you for your email.  We are currently investigating the issue and working to implement a fix as soon as possible.

Hi,
I had the same problem a few weeks ago.

As I have the marriage index on Digger - I just put in the register number and year of the marriage and I got the correct marriage.

If you don't have the index perhaps I can help you or some other kind person will be able to.

Add: I may have had to put the Christian name of one them - not too sure now (my senior brain).

Hi Rick & Sarra,

The Vic BDM's still have the same issue with marriages.  Seems unusual they haven't fixed it by now. ???     I solved my query another way, so do not need help.  Thank you for the kind offer anyhow. :)
Hope it's fixed soon.

Cheers, Bob
