GRG 78/49 Royal Adelaide Hospital Admission Registers, 1840-1922, 1924-1959 is indexed for the period 1840 - c1904.

A typical entry in the index includes some of the following:

  4. Admission Date
  5. Residence
  6. Occupation

GRG 78/49 is available on microfilm at both Research Centres for the date ranges 1840-1922, 1924-1926. Registers for later years need to be ordered for viewing at the Gepps Cross Research Centre. Unfortunately, due to the fragility, size and weight of these records, they cannot be transported for viewing at the City Research Centre.

The series GRG 78/49 has an access restriction period of 60 years. Researchers wishing to view admission registers that fall within the access restriction period need to contact the Royal Adelaide Hospital to get written access approval.

State Records of South Australia holds a number of series for the Royal Adelaide Hospital that may be of interest to family historians and academic researchers. For further description, enter GRG 78 in the agency ID field of Direct Search within ArchivesSearch.
