      Following the apology to the Forgotten Australians, the Federal Labor
      Government published a website, the Find & Connect web resource for "former
      Child Migrants and everyone with an interest in the history of out-of-home
      'care' in Australia."

      http://www.findandconnect.gov.au/

      You can search by colony/state back to the early 19th Century, by
      organisation name, location, date and by category of institution.

      Here, for example, is the listing for children's homes in NSW:

      http://www.findandconnect.gov.au/nsw/browse_c_function.htm#F000001


      Here are the institutions operative in NSW in the 1910s:

      http://www.findandconnect.gov.au/nsw/browse_1910s.html


      When you choose an institution, it gives a brief history, points to related
      organisations, what archives might be relevant and what online resources are
      available.


      The former NSW Labor Government published "Connecting Kin: Guide to Records"
      by Kristy Thinee and Tracy Bradford. "This a guide to help people separated
      from their families search for their records [completed in 1998],"

      http://www.community.nsw.gov.au/DOCSWR/_assets/main/documents/connectkin_gui
      de.pdf

      Worth the download and a read through.
