St Martha's Industrial Home Records (1888 - 1969)


The St Martha's Industrial Home Records include Admission Registers dating between 1941 and 1967, a box of cards relating to children, and some Baptismal Certificates.


Access Conditions

Physical access to the original records is not possible due to their fragility. For access to information held within these records, please contact Family Spirit.


The Archives of Mary MacKillop and the Sisters of St Joseph held the records of St Martha's Industrial Home until April 2013, when the records were moved to CatholicCare Adoption Services Bankstown, now known as Family Spirit.
