Description

This series comprises cards prepared under the Aboriginals Preservation and Protection Acts 1939-1946 and the Aborigines' and Torres Strait Islanders' Affairs Act of 1965. The cards were compiled separately to record unemployment details of persons residing in Doomadgee, presumably for benefit related purposes. The cards contain similar and additional information to the Doomadgee identification cards and permit cards (Series 316 and Series 319).

The unemployment cards record details in some or all of the following entries:

Name of the person, address, parent's names, marital status, date of birth, place of birth, occupation, name of spouse [spouse's date of birth and parent's names], place and date of marriage, children's names [their dates and place of birth, where living and the recognized paternity]. On the back of the cards, or in many cases attached to this card, is another card which lists details including: dates for two columns headed by social security reference numbers - S.U.2 and S.U.19A and/or S.U.19B (S.U. 19s lodged), employment commencement date, employment finishing date, place of employment and reason for finishing. It may also be indicated on the cards as to whether the persons are deceased (and the date and place of death).

Note that these records relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples contain language which is now considered offensive. These cards contain material which may cause distress.

NB: Not all cards contain information in every category listed above. Some cards record limited detail, eg., name of the person only.
