In addition to basic information, the index card of a child migrant might note the place of employment, if he or she wished to return to England, and if there was a consent to marriage and with it, an exemption from the Commonwealth Immigration (Guardianship of Children) Act 1946.
Index cards of child migrants who did not arrive in Tasmania but got off the ship somewhere else, for instance in Freemantle, are also included.
Some of the nominators were Boys' Town, the Big Brother Movement, and the Fairbridge Society.
The file number for each person with a file in the Migrant Files, series number AA59, is given.
