    The State Archives collection may have some historical records relating to the Australian Aborigines Evangelical Mission (AAEM) (possibly listed as A.A.E.M.). It is uncertain how much material there is, or how relevant it might be. Any records that are held by the State Records Office would have been deposited by a government agency, but files may include material generated by the AAEM.
