Access to the records in this series is based around the Adoption Act 2000. For plain language information on what this means for you the New South Wales Government has created two sets of fact sheets. One for adoptions before 2010 and one for all adoptions after 2010. links to these factsheets are provided below under "Publications".
Depending on your age (if you are under 18), if you are a relative or an individual who experienced adoption directly and on the time of your adoption experience you will have different kinds of access to records in this series. As such people wishing to access records in this series should contact Anglicare to find out what access conditions apply to them.

The files relate to 88 birth mothers who chose not to relinquish their child or children for adoption. The information contained on the files includes the name of the mother and child or children, date of birth, and address at the time of the application.
