This series comprises genealogies and genealogical notes recorded on Board for Anthropological Research expeditions, as well as some genealogies collected on other expeditions.

The genealogies record data elicted from Australian Aboriginal informants. The genealogies in this series were collected by NB Tindale (see AA 338), PJ Epling, JB Birdsell (see AA 689) and A Gordon.

The genealogies are in various formats; however, most are recorded on double sheets of foolscap paper which have later been bound into volumes. The genealogies generally record a number of generations, including that of the informant (with individual subject number), information including names, birthdate, birthplace, place of death, 'tribe', and section, as well as information about life history, and sometimes other notes.

This series is arranged chronologically by expedition, with the exception of AA 346/5/5, which is listed as previously bound into a single volume, and AA 346/5/10. Within each item, the genealogies are organised by the place at which the data was recorded.

Language groups noted on the genealogies have not been reproduced here; they may be checked by referring to the relevant listing of Board for Anthropological Research data cards (AA 346/4).
