Tasmania, Victoria and New Zealand records added to Ancestry

Ancestry ( has added four new sets of records for those with Australian and Kiwi based family:

Victoria, Australia, Lunatic Estates and Register, 1867-1906

New Zealand, School Registers and Lists, 1850-1967

Tasmania, Australia, Baptisms of Children of Convicted Women, 1833-1854

Tasmania, Australia, Convict Court and Selected Records, 1800-1899

The Tasmanian sets have been sourced from Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office in Hobart, and the Victoria collection from the Public Record Office Victoria, North Melbourne, but the New Zealand collection does not have any source given, save to say that the records have been keyed as part of the World Archives Project.
