Anglican Archive visit

Last Wednesday I got to visit the Anglican Archives, located at 19 King William Road, North Adelaide SA 5006. It is always good to see what is being held in other collections, so we can refer people to the right places.

Here is some brief information.

Archivist: Robyn Radford (Thursdays only)

What they hold
Recent records, Synod Admin records, Bishop Home Mission & Evangelism, photographs of churches, selection of church newsletters and order of services.
Crockford’s Clerical Directory (Anglican Clergyman from around the world) 1869 to present
Australian Clergy Directory (annual) There is also the book “Anglican Clergymen in SA in the 19th Century) by TT Read. (This is still purchasable from Gould books).
Parish histories

What’s in the State Library of SA
· Parish records
