What are the South African  NAAIRS files?

NAAIRS is an acronym for "National Automated 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. All queries can be directed to Naairs@dac.gov.za
