The team will search for all existing files on you, not just the record of your time in institutional care. Once this is located they will contact you to indicate how long it will take to process the request and provide you with a copy of your file.
Some records were destroyed in the floods in QLD in 1973/1974 - Click here "The Flood... and What Became of those Files" for more information
