  • How to use the Records
    Use this series to identify files relevant to your research. These files are located in the General Correspondence Files - Alpha-Numeric Systems (VPRS 14914).
    Refer to notes relating to Function/Content of this series to understand the meaning and significance of the alpha prefixes S, W and P.

    Scan the Consignment Details List for the General Correspondence Files (VPRS 14914) and by checking the list of files with, and without, relevant alphabetical prefixes (separately listed) as well as the file date range, identify items relevant to your research. This is necessary because only physical files, active at the time were marked with the allocated prefix. Inactive archived files retained their original numbering system but some of them were later re-activated with correspondence added to them.
    It is not known whether a new Index reflecting the top-numbered structure was ever created.

  • Function / Content
    This series consists of four separate Indexes combined into a single file. This consolidated index was created by the Korumburra Water Board (VA 4723) at the time when inactive and active files were separated.

    It comprises:
    1. Original classification for the Korumburra Sewerage Authority (VA 4724) files.
    Physical active files at the time were allocated an alphabetical prefix S

    There is no separate index for the top-numbered or newly created files.

    2. Original classification for the Korumburra Waterworks Trust (VA 2110) files.
    Physical active files were marked with a W prefix.

    There is no separate index for the top-numbered or newly created files.

    3. Original classification for the Poowong, Loch and Nyora Waterworks Trust (VA 2147) files. This classification system had a W prefix for all alpha-numeric files.

    4. Extended/updated classification for the Poowong, Loch and Nyora Waterworks Trust files. Prefix 'W' used for files originating from this organisation was removed and the index reflected changes and additions to the file holdings. Removal of the W prefix from the original file classification was most probably undertaken in order to avoid confusion with another file classification - top-numbered Korumburra Waterworks Trust files. Physical active files were marked with the P prefix.

    There is no separate index for the top-numbered or newly created files.




  • Recordkeeping System
    Individual Indexes for different systems/provenance are separated and clearly marked within this file/series. Refer to the Consignment Details List.
    Lists are in alpha-numeric order reflecting the structure of the classification system.

    This series was created as a control record for VPRS 14914 General Correspondence Files, Alpha-Numeric System. Correspondence referred to by this series may be located within VPRS 14914.
