Obituary - Victoria Portal - A sub project of Obituary Portal

Obituaries are an excellent way to find information, or confirm facts about a persons life, relationships, occupation and ethnic background. Eventually this will become a portal for minor projects that will be sorted by year of death.

If you find a person on the tree, or add someone that has his/her obituary here, please copy it to their profile and add them to the project or the sub project that is appropriate and contains the obituary. ALSO please list them below under the appropriate year.

If a project has not been created yet, feel free to create it using the format shown in the blank template uploaded in docs, or request it to be created by messaging one of the collaborators listed on the right of this panel. try to add links in obituaries to profiles and ships list projects, as many early settlers have the vessel they arrived on mentioned in their obituary.

To add an obituary you will need to either request to collaborate, or, message the obituary to a collaborator. Please get involved. (keep in mind sometimes they have mistakes)



  • 1908 In last issue we. made reference to a very serious operation which had .been performed on Miss Catherine (Katie) Butler, in the hospital on. Thursday, and stated that little hope was entertained of her recovery. It .is with regret that we.have to announce that she passed peacefully away at 3 a.m. on Friday. The deceased, who was 30 years of age, and a native of Ballarat, was a daughter of the late Mrs. Butler, of O'Callaghan's Parade, and her death took place exactly six weeks to" the day after that of mother. Miss Butler had resided for nine years at MaIra, and only returned on the death of her mother, in order to keep house for her brothers. Much sympathy is felt for the bereaved family. The flag on the Fire Brigade Tower was flying half-mast high on Friday and Saturday, the deceased's brother being a member of the brigade. The funeral., which was largely attended, took place on Sunday. The Rev. Father Waldron officiated, and the pallbearers were Mr. J. Murphy, Mr. G. Tydeman, Mr. J. Calvin, and Mr. H. Harris. Mr. A. F. Weight carried out the funeral arrangements.
