Wonderful news for those researching in Victoria! :) :) :)

The following is information from Ancestry.com about new records that are available.

About Victoria, Australia, Rate Books, 1855-1963
This collection contains rate books for various cities and boroughs in Victoria, Australia. Rates were assessed based on a property’s value and were collected for everything from libraries and street lighting to road repairs. They typically listed occupant’s name, owner’s name, residence date and place, description, rate assessed, and sometimes occupation.
Because these records place individuals at a particular address in a particular year, they are helpful for tracing your ancestors’ whereabouts, including when they might have moved.
