Online Records

State Records of South Australia holds more than 90km of records, covering almost every facet of state and local government administration in South Australia. We have digitised some of our most popular records relating to family history, including passenger lists, school admission registers and social welfare. This digitisation work has been undertaken in partnership with FamilySearch, as well as a range of volunteers and community contributors.

Links below point to images hosted on this website, and on the FamilySearch website. Access through FamilySearch will require completion of a free registration. If you do not wish to register you may send us an enquiry to ask for a copying quote.

Selected photographs are also available through State Records' Flickr page. There is no need to register with Flickr to search the images.

​For indexes to these and other records, see our catalogue or Indexes and Special Lists page. See also Fact Sheets and other information available through our A-Z for Researchers.

More records are being digitised all the time, so please check back here for updates. If you discover any broken links on this page, please send us an enquiry.
