Our Research Centre is closed to the public in response to the COVID-19 pandemic but that doesn't mean you can't still enjoy the State Records of South Australia collection from home. We're here to make sure archives are still available.
Starting your research
With more time at home, there’s never been a better chance to start your own research. Discover our collection and you never know where it might take you. Maybe there’s a few branches of the family tree to complete or a couple of elusive ancestors you’ve never been able to pin down, we bet our Family History Research guide can help.
If you’re looking for some inspiration with your research or just an interesting read, check out our Stories from the Archive.
We’ll be dedicating a few hours to answering all your archival research questions across our social media platforms – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Keep an eye out here and on our social media for news about the next Q&A.
You’ll never know just how useful an Archivist is until you start asking us some questions!
Our Flickr page features thousands of photographs from our collection. From South Australian Tourism Publicity Posters to Historical Moustaches there’s so many great photos to view. Or maybe you want to see South Australia and the Northern Territory in 1935 through the lens of world famous photographer Frank Hurley? We’ve got that covered too!
We’ll be uploading more photographs over the coming weeks so make sure to keep checking back in.
Keep an eye out for more
We’re keeping busy from home researching some more Stories from the Archive, uploading some more photographs to Flickr and hosting some more online Q&As so keep an eye on this page for updates.
We’re also playing along with #Archives30 on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts through the month of April so it’s not too late to join in the fun!
