Note about sources
In conducting your research, you will need to click on each collection item below (on the icon with an “SL” in a box at the bottom left corner of the image) and then again on the image in the pop-up to access the full record, and further sources on the State Library’s website.
Most sources have been transcribed (i.e. typed up so they are easier to read). Where provided, the link to the transcribed version of the source can be found on its online catalogue record. See below for an example of where to find this link.
