Feature Expedition

Kennerley Boys Home admissions

Field notesLibraries Tasmania

These records describe the admission of boys to the Kennerley Boys Home, a home for destitute and neglected boys in West Hobart, Tasmania, which operated from 1869. The organisation continues to provide foster care services to the present day.

The data collected through this transcription will be added to the Tasmanian Names Index, an online database developed by Libraries Tasmania to assist our clients in searching for human data in our collection of digitised archives.
