Material can also be found in the records of the Department of Indigenous Affairs and its predecessors - see the Series Registration System and The Catalogue for listings (the various agencies which have handled Aboriginal Affairs in Western Australia can be found under the heading Aboriginal People). The Department has also compiled indexes to personal names and missions which are available at the State Records Office enquiry desk. Also of interest are:
