Who can view the Tindale Collection?

The South Australian Museum is the custodian of the Tindale Collection, with the AHRS division at the DLGSC holding copies of the Western Australian component under a Custodial Agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, only direct descendants or those with written approval from communities or families can view the genealogies..

If you find an entry and wish to view a Tindale record, you can:

  • Submit a Family History or General Research application form available from the Aboriginal History main page; or

  • contact us for further research assistance.

Native Title researchers can request to view the records for purposes related to the resolution of native title claims pursuant to the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) only. Please see the Native Title researcher page for information on how to apply.
