Registers Of Warrants Received are records about girls who attended Parramatta Girls Training Home, Parramatta Girls Industrial School, Newcastle Industrial School for Females and Biloela Industrial School between August 1867 and 1942 who received a warrant. The registers provide information about the person, their background and where they were sentenced.
Access to these records is restricted. People wishing to access restricted records can either contact their nearest Community Services Centre to apply or they can post the information; an application form must be completed together with proof of identity provided..
The Registers Of Warrants Received record the name of each child, her age, education and religion; the name of her parents and of the court at which she was sentenced. Entries start from the School's inception. There are no entries surviving for the period October 1869 to November 1876.
According to Connecting Kin (1998), there are 2 volumes of Registers Of Warrants Received.
