Sources of Material

Many private individuals, families and collecting institutions have contributed archival materials for the project. These have been digitised and entered into the computer database. Some original materials have been donated and are held in secure, archival storage in Adelaide. The following collections were in the database in 2007. Since that time many more collections have been added.
