Description
 
Military records provide a wealth of information for the family historian and general researcher, and are therefore a useful source of information. But how do you go about finding and obtaining these records?

The researcher interested in the military history of their South Australian family will need to identify the appropriate regiment/s their ancestor was involved with. This in turn will lead to a greater understanding of the role played by the person concerned in their day-to-day military life. Such an approach will ensure a better understanding of one's past.

Written specifically as course notes for lectures that Graham Jaunay (a South Australian genealogist) gives, this booklet covers the resources available, and how to access them.
