NAAIRS Databases-South Africa

For each archives repository of the National and provincial archives services, a separate database has been defined as shown below. In addition there are databases for the national registers of non-public records. The National Register of Manuscripts (NAREM) and the National Register of Photographs (NAREF) are maintained in a single database, which also includes information on cartographic and library material, microfilms and copies in the custody of the National Archives. There is a database for the National Register of Audio-Visual Material (NAROM). The above databases may be consulted collectively in a concatenated database. NAAIRS also includes two non-archival databases in respect of heraldic representations registered by the Bureau of Heraldry and genealogical information on gravestones prepared by the South African Genealogical Society. for more click here
