Department Records

These department records are transcriptions of files held at the State Records Office of Western Australia (SROWA). For an overview of all Aboriginal records held at the State Records Office of Western Australia, please visit their website.

This website will upload documents that can be found on open access at the SROWA, but which have yet to be digitised. The documents will be transcribed from the original files or a microfiche copy, by date order, and will be fully searchable.

Original jpeg copies of these documents are available on request.

Please note that not all the pages in every file have been included in the transcripts: pages that are repeated or which have only a heading sheet that duplicates information given on other pages are not transcribed; also, the order of the transcript is by date, although in the original file the pages may not be in date order. Spelling is left as given in the original.
