the inquistion

The inquisition has arrived. Well, maybe not like the actual inquisition. But oh my, how the language of the past was.

So Jane’s inquest documents arrived, courtesy of the Public Records Office of Victoria.

I chose to pay for them to digitize the record, a total of $22.20 to be sent, a service you can request after searching for the inquest. I could have gone into the reading room for free, but I wanted to get this glimpse first. And besides, parking, time, etc. etc. it’s probably twenty two dollars well spent. Great turn around time, I only requested them 9 days ago.

I shall reveal more when I have more of a chance to examine the inquisition documents. My gut is telling me not much information here, not enough pages. Stay tuned.

And Happy Friyay!
