Anglican Diocese of Wangaratta

For many years now, we have had the archives of various parishes of the Anglican Diocese of the Riverina in our Collection.  These records are one of the most popular collections requested in our Search Room as the majority of these church records are Baptism Registers, Marriage Registers and Burial Registers. Understandably, such items can be invaluable to family historians.

In the last couple of years we have also begun to receive records from parishes in the Anglican Diocese of Wangaratta. The Diocese covers a large part of Victoria, stretching from Albury in NSW down to Marysville, just above Melbourne.
