The National Archives has recently digitised all registers it holds for Commonwealth run migrant hostels in South Australia.These are now available online. Many post-WWII migrants stayed in hostels such as Glenelg and Finsbury. The registers are important resources for family and social historians.

Find out how to access these records and hear the stories they reveal about those who spent time in migrant hostels.

This talk is part of a monthly series, South Australia selections from the National Archives, presenting newly available online content.
