What are the South African NAAIRS
NAAIRS is an acronym for "National
Archival Information Retrieval System", a reference database held by the South African
National Archives in Pretoria on which references to documents held in various repositories are stored. These files were previously known as STAIRS files. As a rule the
names of people mentioned in the body of the document are included in the reference.
Lists of references can be
obtained for any name or search criterion from the South African National Archives.
