A Research Centre Members card, obtainable at the Archives, is required to research records held at State Records.
Although some very early records relating to children in care in South Australia are open for access, most records relating to children are subject to a 100 year restriction, particularly those which contain personal information about individuals. Written permission must be obtained from the government agency which created the record in order to access restricted material. To obtain permission a Freedom of Information (FOI) request form must be submitted to the relevant government department. State Records staff will be able to assist you with this.
The collection Records created by the Destitute Board comprises a group of archival series created by this Board. These include minutes, reports, registers and other administrative records. To see a full listing of the records included in this collection you can go to ArchivesSearch, the search engine of State Records of South Australia.
