Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    The Adoption of Children Amending Act 1942 (No.4903) authorised the transmission of copies of adoption orders made in another State or Territory of the Commonwealth concerning children born in Victoria, or made in Victoria concerning children born in other State or Territory.

    Under a reciprocal agreement entered into between all States and Territories of the Commonwealth, Adoption Orders made outside Victoria are forwarded to the Government Statist Office via the Prothonotary's Office. Such orders were treated in the same way as the orders issued by a Victorian Court. An acknowledgment by letter advising receipt is forwarded to the Prothonotary's Office.

    This series comprises files containing statements of particulars of adoptions made in other States forwarded by the Prothonotary's Office to the Government Statists Office.

    The series date range has been imputed from contents in custody date range, ie 1951 to 1973.
