  • How to use the Records
    Consult the Consignment Details List and order in the file covering the time period of interest.

    Consult the alphabetical index located at the front of most files for the name of the person to whom the letter was addressed and turn to the page number indicated.

    Researchers might also consider checking the Register of Outward Correspondence VPRS 14807 which was created as the control record for this series. This register provides reference to the annual single letter number and a relevant subject based alpha-numeric file number. The annual single letter number can be used to locate outward correspondence contained within this series. Please note that correspondence was arranged in page number order, which does not necessarily correspond with letter number order.

  • Function / Content
    This series consists of copies of outward correspondence created by Korumburra Waterworks Trust (VA 2110) and Korumburra Sewerage Authority (VA 4724), their successor Korumburra Water Board (VA 4723), and its successor the South Gippsland Region Water Authority. Letter books were the means by which copies of correspondence despatched from the office were retained for future reference. Correspondence covers all functions carried out by the Waterworks Trust, Board, and Authorities. These files also contain prcis of outward correspondence arising from the meetings of the board.

    Korumburra Water Board was also the successor agency for Poowong Loch and Nyora Waterworks Trust (VA 2147). This series may be the continuation of the correspondence covering the functions and region of the Waterworks Trust previously located in VPRS 14805 Outward Correspondence.

  • Recordkeeping System
    All outward correspondence was numbered with an annual single number to be quoted as the reference number of the correspondence. Copies of the outward correspondence collated within this series were also provided with handwritten page numbers. Relevant alpha-numeric file numbers were also recorded on the correspondence.

    Copies of correspondence were arranged chronologically by the date the letters were sent. An index was created for most files, located at the beginning of the file, which provides a reference to the relevant handwritten page number. The Index is alphabetical by addressee's name.

    VPRS 14807 Register of Outward Correspondence was created as the control record for the files contained in this series. The Register provides the Reference Number of the correspondence (the annual single number sequence) and an alpha-numeric file number that relates to a relevant subject-based file, which may be located in VPRS 14914 General Correspondence Files, Alpha-Numeric System.

    Please note that the correspondence was not arranged in annual single number order.
