In October 2005, as part of the celebrations of 150 years of parliament in Victoria, an online index to the Woman's Petiton was launched.

The petiton can be searched by name or by area where person lived. The online petiton has become a great resource for family history and local history research.

A number of members of historical societies and genealogy groups are investigating the names from geographic areas to locate and provide additional information about the women who signed the petition. A number of these projects are avaialble online.
