GRG 56/79 - Research Notes
This series consists Research Notes held by State Records.
Historically, a Research Note was created by an archivist following research on a topic, usually at the request of a member of the public. The Notes usually take the form of a brief document describing the result of that research, however they can contain newspaper articles about historical subjects, letters to members of the public from the South Australian Archives (now State Records of South Australia) answering research questions, brochures from historical or other organisations, chronologies, biographies, etc.
Most of the notes were compiled by the first archivist of the South Australian Archives, George Pitt, to assist researchers interested in South Australian or Northern Territory history. Additional material has been added by staff or submitted by researchers from time to time.
The range of topics covered by the Notes varies widely and includes Aborigines, Expeditions, Theatres and Yorke Peninsula.
Note: State Records no longer undertakes research on behalf of members of the public and no further Research Notes are being added to this series. Details of the services State Records offers can be found here.
The list is indexed by the subject of each Research Note, and also contains a brief description of the contents of each Note and its number. The Notes themselves can be inspected in the State Records Research Centre.
