Adelaide Anglican Archives

anglicanThe Archdiocese of Adelaide has maintains an archive at the Diocesan Centre in the Cathedral Close at 27 King William Road North Adelaide.

Access to the Adelaide Anglican Archives collection is by appointment only.

The archive collection is mainly concerned with the administration of the diocese and the welfare agency known as Anglicare. That aspect of the collection of interest to family historians such as parish registers has been filmed and is available at the State Library of SA and the SA Genealogy & Heraldry Society. However, if your research relates to the administration of the church, its priests, the welfare services or its properties then you will need to start with this collection. The archivist can direct you to the appropriate church if they still hold their own records. Church schools usually hold their own records.

If you seek records of children taken into care by Anglican Welfare agencies then you need to start with this collection.
