      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],"
