Mining Claims & Leases

A group of volunteers have been transcribing the Sandhurst [Bendigo] Mining Claims and Leases from film onto a computer program. Our database details all the available information, but this index shows the  names of the people who have been listed so far. This is a work in progress and will be added to regularly.


The Bendigo Family History Group gratefully acknowledge the support of the Victorian Government through the Community Support Fund and Public record Office Victoria for making this project possible.
