I would like to research the closer & soldier settlement in the North-East of Vic, specifically in the Mansfield district. I want to find the names of the families & the blocks they settled on at each of the implementations of the schemes. can you point me in the right direction? Thanks,
Julie

Hi Julie. Your best bet is to contact the Public Record Office of Victoria, which holds the Closer [and Soldier] Settlement Files (Series VPRS 5714). These are not searchable online but you can contact PROV for further information through their website: http://www.prov.vic.gov.au/contact.asp

I know this is 12 months after your post but I wondered whether you have found out any info. My father had one of the blocks in the Wairere Estate between Piries and Booralite
