Personal Cards is a series created by the Western Australia Department of Native Affairs (and its predecessors) and held by the State Records Office of Western Australia. It contains approximately 5,500 cards relating to individual Aboriginal people who were removed from different areas around Western Australia and sent to Carrolup Native Settlement and Moore River Native Settlement. The cards contain information including name of the individual, their parents, employment details, marriage status, birth and death details of family members, information about the removal of their children, health information, and information from police.



Access to these records is restricted for 100 years from the date of creation in order to protect personal privacy. Please contact the Aboriginal History Research Services for access to these records. Those records older than 100 years are open, and can be access via the State Records Office of Western Australia.
