Burnside in the Archives: researching local government at State Records

Presented by Helen Chadwick

Annual General Meeting to be held prior to speaker.

State Records of South Australia holds the archive of official records created by state and local government, covering almost every facet of state and local administration in South Australia from 1836 and forwards.  This talk will explore the local stories found in different government records, including those of the original District Council of Burnside and later councils.  Useful tips and trips for researching local and family history at State Records will also be given.

 

 

 

Helen Chadwick is State Records Programs and Engagement Officer and in this role is responsible for telling as many people as possible about the wonders in the archives.  In her previous role as Archivist Helen spent many years in the State Records Research Centre helping researchers to uncover stories and answering all sorts of questions about the archive.
