- A445, 133/2/40 (National Archives of Australia Series and Item Number)
Although Children's Homes were overseen by Western Australian authorities, the Commonwealth Department of Immigration received reports about children who had come as unaccompanied child migrants to WA. This file in the National Archives of Australia holds some of those reports.
This record is available in digital format, so it can be read online. Some children are named in the file, and there are general reports on educational and health conditions as well as correspondence about bringing Maltese child migrants to the Home.
