St John's Home, Auburn Street
This series of Admission Registers relates to St John's Home, Auburn Street. In most cases these registers contain the following: name of child; date of birth; dates of admission and discharge; former address (sometimes only the name of a town); and religion. The name of at least one parent appears. If siblings came into care their details are also recorded. It is not always possible to determine the exact reason for admission. Quantity: 1 box and 1 filing cabinet
Information in the records is available to the individual to whom it relates, or a family member provided they can prove their relationship to the person. Information is not available to third parties about a person who is still alive. All requests for access to information should be directed to the Institute of the Sisters of Mercy of Australasia and Papua New Guinea.
