Savill Index of The Advertiser Funeral Notices 1971 – 1990 and 1997 – 2013

The State Library of South Australia has recently published on their website the Savill Index of The Advertiser Funeral Notices covering 1971 -1990 and then from 1997 to 2013.

From January 2001 Mr Gerald Savill began extracting and indexing funeral notices that were published in Adelaide’s major daily newspaper The Advertiser. In total he spent more than 300 days at the State Library of South Australia searching newspaper microfilms. The results of his work are now available online on the Library website as the Savill Index of The Advertiser Funeral Notices.  The Index is arranged alphabetically by surname, given name and on occasion given maiden name or nicknames.

I searched the Index for the funeral notice of my Uncle Donald (Don) Burrows and very quickly located the information below saving me much time searching The Advertiser films.

 The Savill Index is a welcome addition to South Australian family history resources!
