Convenient Fires & Floods

img of newspaperFires and floods abound in discussions about Care Leaver records, and are often cited as the reason for missing records. Not surprisingly, these stories of fires and floods are often met with suspicion by Care Leavers.

In our very first podcast, recorded at the International Conference on the History of Records and Archives Kirsten, Cate and Nicola discuss natural disasters, whether they actually took place, and whether they’re responsible for missing Care Leaver records.

Please note that this was recorded onsite at the conference and the sound quality reflects that.
