Series notes for series E944
The files consist mainly of census reports forms compiled
periodically at various communities/locations throughout the
Northern Territory from the 1960s.
Information recorded on the form includes location and date of census
name (both European and Aboriginal), group (sub-section), tribe
(language), sex, date of birth, type of marriage (date if legal), APR
number and additional details. The signature of the officer compiling
the report form appears at the bottom left-hand corner. Some report
forms are augmented by attached correspondence which provide a
summary of persons living at a particular location.
For certain locations/communities, the information is not recorded on
the standard report form but is typed in columns on blank paper.
Information recorded therein includes name, skin, d.o.b., r.o.w.,
consort(s), sons, daughter, parent, where born and remarks.
Census records for some schools may also be found within the series.
