State Records NSW has a significant collection of records relating to Aboriginal people. The records document the business of government in NSW and its interaction with Aboriginal people. One of the most significant sources of material are the records of the former Aborigines Welfare Board (formerly the Aborigines Protection Board) 1883 – 1969. These records document the administration of a Board which had significant control over the lives of Aboriginal people – from the management of reserves and subsequent movements of Aboriginal people – to the removal of Aboriginal children from their families.
