In 2020, the whereabouts of these records are not clear and research is being conducted to clarify the situation. In 2014, Find & Connect was advised that the records were with DHHS and were in the process of being transferred to the Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office. However, in 2020 Find & Connect was advised that these records were not in the collection of the Tasmanian Archives. The location of these records is currently unknown. This website will be updated with accurate and up-to-date information about these records as soon as it is available.
