This guide gives information about Australia's immigration policy and child and youth migration to Australia, including information about relevant archival records in Australia and overseas, especially Britain and Malta.
You can read this guide online; it has links to records on the National Archives website. See Chapter 3 for these records and Appendix 4 for records held elsewhere.
This guide is useful but it is not the only source of information. Please discuss your search with staff from the National Archives of Australia (there is a link under 'organisations' below).
