STATE RECORDS OF SA
Although some early records relating to children in care in South Australia are open access, many later records are subject to restrictions, particularly records 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. In the case of records relating to children, the current agency responsible is the Department for Communities and Social Inclusion (DCSI).
A Research Centre Members card, obtainable at the Archives, is required to research records held at State Records.
