A Research Centre Members card, obtainable at the Archives, is required to research records held at State Records.
Although some very early records relating to children in care in South Australia are open for access, most records relating to children are subject to a 100 year restriction, particularly those which contain personal information about individuals. Written permission must be obtained from the government agency which created the record in order to access restricted material. To obtain permission a Freedom of Information (FOI) request form must be submitted to the relevant government department. State Records staff will be able to assist you with this.
These admission /intake cards are also referred to as Liaison cards. They record details such as: (1) Name; (2) Age; (3) Date of birth; (4) Names and contact details of parents/guardians; (5) Height, weight and distinguishing marks; (6) Reasons admitted; (7) Court of committal; (8) Sentence; (9) Dates admitted and released; (10) Number of days to serve; (11) Absconding details (if any); (12) Current or outstanding warrants; (13) Officer/Social worker responsible for child.
