Genealogical data recorded by Board for Anthropological Research expedition members, 1928-1966.

ProvenanceBoard for Anthropological Research
Description

This series comprises genealogies and genealogical notes recorded on Board for Anthropological Research expeditions, as well as some genealogies collected on other expeditions.

The genealogies record data elicted from Australian Aboriginal informants. The genealogies in this series were collected by NB Tindale (see AA 338), PJ Epling, JB Birdsell (see AA 689) and A Gordon.

The genealogies are in various formats; however, most are recorded on double sheets of foolscap paper which have later been bound into volumes. The genealogies generally record a number of generations, including that of the informant (with individual subject number), information including names, birthdate, birthplace, place of death, 'tribe', and section, as well as information about life history, and sometimes other notes.

This series is arranged chronologically by expedition, with the exception of AA 346/5/5, which is listed as previously bound into a single volume, and AA 346/5/10. Within each item, the genealogies are organised by the place at which the data was recorded.

Language groups noted on the genealogies have not been reproduced here; they may be checked by referring to the relevant listing of Board for Anthropological Research data cards (AA 346/4).

Harvard and Adelaide Universities Anthropological Expedition genealogies, 1938-39

  'Genealogical Data on the Aborigines of Australia gathered during the Harvard and Adelaide Universities Anthropological Expedition 1938-39 by Norman B Tindale. South Australian Museum, Adelaide.'
 

This group of genealogies comprises seven bound volumes of genealogies, two bound volumes of copies of genealogies, a bound volume of births and deaths data and some loose genealogy sheets. The data was collected by Norman B Tindale (see AA 338) on the Harvard and Adelaide Universities Anthropological expedition in 1938-1939 (Board for Anthropological Research expedition N).

The genealogies generally show more than two generations, and include a range of information, from names, age or birthdate, place of birth, tribe or place of origin, 'genetic class', to notes on personal history such as occupation and place of residence. They are recorded on double foolscap sheets. Many extend across multiple sheets (numbered 2a to 2f, for example). Genealogies have the place at and date on which the data was recorded stamped on the top left hand corner. Individual subject numbers are also recorded, and these can be used to refer back to the data cards collected on the expedition (see AA 346/4/21); note also that the genealogy 'sheet numbers' correspond to the 'family numbers' in data card series AA 346/4/21/3.
