Currently in Australia , we can obtain certificates by paying by Credit Card on line for :
Can someone explain why Queensland and Victoria are so far behind NSW with access to Marriages.
I have had the unfortunate situation of trying to obtain a MC in Victoria for 1944. I am in Sydney , everything on their 1300 number and their website is all about Victorians obtaining a certificate. After waiting 20 mins on the phone , I have to provide proof of who I am (certified by a JP), and provide the death certificates of the two persons in the marriage.............and fill out a four page application !!! Why possessed my sister get married in Melbourne !!!
What is further annoying is I can get a Marriage Certificate from the UK at least to 1964 and some further years on line and posted to Australia cheaper than Victorian or New South Wales certificates
