The Sisters of Mercy Archives are located in North Sydney and were established in 1865 at the same time as the North Sydney Congregation of the Sisters of Mercy. These Archives previously held the records of children's Homes run by the Sisters of Mercy. Photos from St Catherine's and Waitara Homes are kept at North Sydney and may be searched by ex-residents by appointment.
