Our commitment to accessible records

Lutheran Archives is committed to making our collections as accessible as possible, while respecting privacy principles, cultural protocols and recordkeeping standards. With this in mind, we do not charge to access the collection. We rely heavily on the kindness of our community to fund the ongoing care and accessibility of the collection – any donations over AU$2 are tax-deductible.
