Learn more about what life was like in homes and institutions such as Gordons Home for Boys and Girls, the Melbourne Orphan Asylum and the Melbourne Benevolent Asylum.

Discover what kinds of records the Library holds, what they contain, who can access the records and how. Staff from the Australian Manuscripts and Family History teams will give you hints on how clues in welfare records can point to other resources for revealing your ancestors’ stories.
