All Fairbridge personal records are restricted until 1 September 2045. However, Old Fairbridgians will be granted access to their own personal file if they can prove identity eg driver’s licence, passport, birth certificate etc, showing the same name as that on the file. If a change of name has occurred, proof of such change should be produced. Access to records may be granted when a proof of change of name cannot be produced if the Old Fairbridgian can provide other identifying information such as date of arrival to and departure from Fairbridge, names of cottages stayed in etc. If an Old Fairbridgian cannot prove identity; or if next of kin or other close relative of an Old Fairbridgian; or any other requests for access to Old Fairbridgian files, written permission to view must be obtained from:
