Stolen Generations granted access to SA records

Extract from Australian Broadcasting Corporation - ABC Online, on 11 Sep 2002.

Members of the Stolen Generations in South Australia will have formal
access to official records about their families and their past from today.

State Government agencies will sign a memorandum of understanding to
provide ready access to records such as birth and death certificates, and
employment details.

It is the first time any State Government agency has formalised such
agreements, following on from the Bringing Them Home report five years

Kay Goodman-Dodd, from the Aboriginal community group Nunkuwarrin Yunti
says the records will be used to link members of the Stolen Generations to
their families.

"Just by accessing information helps," Ms Goodman-Dodd said.

"It really is a jigsaw puzzle. It helps put pieces back together so that
people can you know have that self belief, have that identity, know where
they're from and you know to connect to their Aboriginality."
