In the interests of privacy and respect for the communities mentioned in the genealogies, the State Library of NSW has agreed to a restricted access policy, as required by the South Australian Museum. Only direct descendants or those with written approval from communities or families can view the genealogies.
Indigenous Services team (pictured above) at the State Library of New South Wales partner with Indigenous communities to share and celebrate stories of Indigenous Australia.
Norman Tindale was an anthropologist who recorded vast amounts of genealogical information about Indigenous communities all over Australia, mainly during the 1920s and 1930s. The original documents are held in the South Australian Museum. We have copies of the genealogies and photos for New South Wales.
