Aboriginal blanket returns

Description:

The State Archives Collection includes lists of Aboriginal people who received blankets from the colonial authorities in the 19th century. The lists are broadly arranged by locality and include both Indigenous and European names for each person as well as their age. These lists are, and always have been, an incredibly valuable source for people tracing family and personal history.
