Barwon Child, Youth & Family Archive Search Information for Past Clients states:
Barwon Child, Youth & Family is unable to guarantee to have information about all past orphanage clients. Record keeping in times gone by was often scant and some past clients many only have an entry in the admissions books.
If we do have records about you or a member of your family we will process your request as quickly as possible. However, under the Privacy Laws we cannot release information about a third party unless that person gives their written permission or they are deceased. Therefore, we may need to take certain information out of your records before it is provided.
