Auto-biographic method – “Case Study” – Australian Slovenes

The author explains on the case of researching the life of Australian Slovenes some, mainly foreign, ethnological and anthropological definitions of autobiography. Čebulj Sajko Breda presents the stand-point of Slovene researchers towards this type of sources in the second part of her contribution. Despite an increased interest for a thorough theoretical knowledge about life stories we yet do not have an answer to the question what autobiography is.
