Norman Tindale Collection

Over many years anthropologist and entomologist Norman Tindale recorded genealogies of Aboriginal people. From 1928 he began visiting Aboriginal people living on missions and government stations, participated in the 1938-1939 Harvard-Adelaide Universities Anthropological Expedition, and by the end of the 1960s had photographed thousands of Aboriginal people, collected significant cultural material and recorded a large number of genealogies (family trees).


Tindale created genealogies of aboriginal families for up to three generations, sometimes recording languages spoken and other tribal information. All of his original research is held at the South Australian Museum.

The State Library of Queensland has copies of genealogical information and photographs from the Tindale Genealogical Collection for the Queensland Aboriginal communities of Yarrabah, Cherbourg, Mona Mona, Palm Island, Woorabinda, Bentinck Island, Doomadgee and Mornington Island, as well as two northern New South Wales communities at Boggabilla and Woodenbong. The State Library has also created an online index of names recorded in the genealogies. Although anyone can search the index, because much of the information is private or sensitive, there are restrictions on who can access the full family tree information and photographs.
