Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    Researchers should consult the Records Description List to enable them to access cards of interest.

  • Function / Content
    This record series comprises Client Index Cards for the Malmsbury Youth Training Centre (also known as the Malmsbury Youth Justice Centre) (VA 3960). The cards were maintained by the Centre to record biographical information and physical descriptions in relation to the trainees. The cards also record admission, movement and discharge details.

    The front of each card records the trainee's name, date of birth, religion, physical description, parent names and address, and from where they have left immediately before being admitted to Malmsbury, eg. Parents. The back of the card is headed Legal Situation. It provides details of offences, Court appearances including action taken by the Court, Parole date and abscondings. These details, however, are not entered on all cards.

    This series represents a comprehensive source of information about trainees who were resident at the Centre. The importance of this source of information is accentuated because of the small amount of information about trainees at Malmsbury Youth Training Centre for this period. It readily defines whether an individual spent time at Malmsbury.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The arrangement of the cards is alphabetical by trainee surname.

    Prior to viewing records from VPRS 17975 (Trainee Records), this series should be consulted to find out the year(s) in which the trainee was resident at Malmsbury. This will enable access to the appropriate records.
