We are very fortunate that Victorian Wills and Probate Records are available online at the Public Record Office Victoria.
My Great Grandmother told her family that her father's name was Richard Foy. However, when we finally tracked down her birth record, there was no father listed.
Therefore it was a source of relief to many family members to see Agnes listed as Richard Foy's daughter in his Probate Records.
Now if only I could translate the Will for my 4 X Great Grandfather, Donald Scott, I may be able to obtain some more insights into the family. This reminds me that you can search Wills on Scotlands People at no cost then pay a small fee to view the original record.
