The Register/Index of Appearances by Juveniles in the Children's Court in Tasmania includes cases dismissed, admonished and discharged, and adjourned without a date for resuming the case. These records date from 1941 to 1981. They come from the Hobart Area Office of the Social Services Department and its successor, the Social Welfare Department.
Closed D75 years
D75 means these records are closed to the general public for 75 years from the date of the last entry in them. People wishing to access these records should contact Children and Youth Services, which is run by the Department of Health and Human Services. How access is provided once permission is granted will depend on the file. Usually Children and Youth Services request it back and then provide access or copies. Staff at the Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office may be able to assist you in finding other relevant records.
The records include the court number and the offence with the date the child committed it.
