Certificates of Entitlement - Edward River Mission QSA ID - ITM2783586 Date - 1966 - 1968 Access Status Summary - Open Agency Control Number - 1A/685; 1A/388 (Queensland State Archives Certificates of Entitlement "Under the provisions of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Affairs Act of 1965 the Aboriginal and Island Affairs Department was established on 28 Apr 1966 to replace the Director of Native Affairs Office. After the 1965 Act, the Department's policy towards Aboriginal affairs was one of complete equality, opportunity and responsibility within the white community. Instead of seeking 'exemption' from the provision of the Act, people had to apply for a 'Certificate of Entitlement' in order to come under the Act. Wage control and employment agreements were only administered for assisted people. Only people on reserves were considered assisted. With the introduction of the Aborigines Act 1971 and the Torres Strait Islanders Act 1971, the term 'assisted' was abolished. The Aboriginal and Island Affairs Department controlled and managed the Aboriginal population, both adults and children, who were deemed to be 'assisted' or 'wards' of the State. This power was exercised in regard to health, education, employment, housing and accommodation, child welfare, personal finances, pensions and benefits, training, property, issue of Certificates of Entitlement, industrial operations, and trust accounts, etc.") Abbreviations H Husband W Wife Ch Child Da Daughter Fa Father So Son Wid Widow(er) Christian Name Surname Born Birthplace Notes Beryl Bendigo .1909 Edward River Reserve Wid Edgar Bendigo .1948 Edward River Mission Ch Caleb Benjamin .1932 Edward River Reserve H Nellie Benjamin .1936 Edward River Reserve W Dennis Coleman 1. 6.1955 Edward River Mission Ch Danny Coleman 26. 6.1957 Edward River Mission Ch Thomas Benjamin 10. 5.1965 Edward River Mission Ch Tommy Brian .1920 Edward River Reserve H Polly Brian .1921 Edward River Reserve W Peter Brian 30. 5.1947 Edward River Mission Ch Elizabeth Brian 10. 2.1949 Edward River Mission Ch Mary Patricia Brian 8. 3.1967 Ch Kathleen Brian 3. 7.1951 Coen Ch Andrew Brian 2. 8.1953 Edward River Mission Ch Mary Patricia is the child of Elizabeth.
