Occasionally their has been published list of South Australian Pioneers who attended functions or signed a log as a roll call. The lists will be copied here to assist researchers. These lists, cross referenced to original ships lists will confirm the list, and, as married names of ladies are entered, may assist or confirm marriages etc. These persons had to sign the book, so they were still living in these years of roll call.

NB: The absence of a name does not mean the person is deceased, they may not have attended for reasons of ill health, distance, or removed to another State.

See the Historical Timeline Project to see list of projects that place persons in time periods in South Australia.
