This database contains about 57,000 births in South Australia up to the end of 1860. The records found by your search are automatically sorted into family groups. Unregistered births, mostly from church baptism records, are included. The birth place is sometimes given, as is the mother's maiden name. The full birthdate is usually provided.
Many of the spelling errors and inconsistencies in the original source documents have been corrected in our records. Any that remain may give useful but out-of-order search results.
