Family history is a popular area of archival research.

State Records of South Australia has a number of publications that can help get you started. They are described in the Guides for Family History section of this web site.

Other Finding Aids, and access to the records held by State Records, are available through our Research Centre.

To help with your family history research we have also compiled lists of:

  • Records not held by State Records
  • Agencies in South Australia that hold family history and genealogical sources of information (Other Sources of Family History).

Preparing for Your Visit

To prepare for your visit to State Records:

  • identify the people you are attempting to trace by full name, approximate birth and death dates and place of residence, if known
  • prepare specific questions - what is it that you want to know about these people? General requests for all the information on these people are too broad and you need to identify a specific area to research
  • note the resources you have already seen, so we do not recommend them again.
