John Paul Lowens enquired on GerSIG on 25 December concerning his
great aunt Hanchen CAHN nee LOEWENSTEIN who died at Mansfield in 1868.

The Victorian Public Records Office:

http://www.access.prov.vic.gov.au/public/PROVguides/PROVguide023/PROVguide023.jsp

has a number of on-line databases, including the "Index to Unassisted
Inward Passenger Lists to Victoria 1852-1923" which is at:

http://proarchives.imagineering.com.au/index_search.asp?searchid=23

This shows that Hannchen LOWENSTEIN, aged 19, arrived in February
1865 on the "Royal Standard". Searching for the family name
"Lo*stein" covers most alternative spellings.

The Victorian Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages at:

http://online.justice.vic.gov.au/bdm/home

allows searching of historical indexes, however there is a fee to
view results and to order documents, which can be downloaded
immediately as a PDF file.

Marriage 3260 of 1867 is the marriage of Benjamin Cahn and Hannchen Loewenstein
Lowenstein (o umlaut).

For those who have been wondering, Mansfield is a small country town
in the state of Victoria, over 100 miles north-east of Melbourne.
