Note
"Divided into two parts, the first part looks at the records generated in South Australia since 1837. Each groups of records is outlined to reveal the process of generation, the coverage and the potential content the researcher can expect to find. A step-by-step flow-chart on how to access significant records is included with each major group of records. The material covers not only the scope of the records available, but also the problems you may encounter, the reasons for the possible problem and where possible the way around the problem. The second part of the book looks at the major repositories holding records of interest and how the family historian can access them, either in person, or via the internet. A list of addresses and useful websites wraps up the second section"--back cover
