Reconnect with Family

Lotus place staff can assist you to find and connect with family by working with you to access records, understand what is in your file and, if you want to, connect with family.


We can do this by supporting you as you access information and make decisions about what you want to do.

The historical record collection site, has provided access to its records (over 1 billion) and made an account available for Find and Connect Queensland. If you would like to trace your geneology with assistance please contact Lotus Place.

Obtaining Personal Records

Sometimes the hardest part in tracing your history is knowing where to start. We are able to assist you to search for personal records.

The Find and Connect web resource provides an important starting point to help you find out about:

  • the homes in which you were in care, and the records and photos you can access through those institutions
  • support services available through Find and Connect
  • advocacy groups representing your interests as a person who experienced childhood abuse in an institutional setting including out-of-home care.

For more information please contact Lotus Place.
