  • How to use the Records
    This series consists of three separate indexes/lists of authorised file classifications contained in a single folder and provides reference to:

    1. VPRS 14936 - General Correspondence Files, Single Number System and
    VPRS 14756 - General Correspondence Files, Alpha-Numeric System,

    2. VPRS 14918 - General Correspondence Files, Two Number System

    3. VPRS 6008 - General Correspondence Files. This incomplete copy of both subject index cards created and maintained by the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission (VA 723) and printout from the Rural Water Corporation (VA 2338) database relates to Wonthaggi and Inverloch District files. These are primarily located in the P16 consignment of the VPRS 6008. It is not necessary to consult these listings as it is easier and faster to locate the files of interest by scanning the Records Description List for the P16 consignment of VPRS 6008, which provides all necessary information, such as file number, title/description and relevant date range.

    Consult the index relevant to your research, note the file number and refer to the Consignment Details List for the appropriate series to search for the unit number containing file/s of interest.

  • Function / Content
    This series consists of a number of separate indexing records to general correspondence files covering the Wonthaggi and Inverloch areas. It was compiled by Wonthaggi / Inverloch Water Board (VA 2558).

  • Recordkeeping System
    This series was compiled by the Wonthaggi / Inverloch Water Board (VA 2558) and consists of a single folder divided into three separate groups:

    1- File Index to General Correspondence Files, Single Number System created by the Wonthaggi / Inverloch Water Board.

    This expanded List was based on the subject classifications for alpha-numeric files previously used by the Inverloch Sewerage Authority (VA 1991) and Inverloch Waterworks Trust (VA 2105). It provides cross-reference to the alpha-numeric system files and thus can be used to identify files contained in VPRS 14756 and VPRS 14936. This self-indexing list served dual purpose - started initially as an index it was later used as a Register for newly created files. Each letter of alphabet was allocated with a block of numbers, i.e. A - 1000-1999, B - 2000-2999, C - 3000-3999 and so on.

    2. Numerical List of Authorised File Classifications for General Correspondence Files, Two Number System controlling files created by Wonthaggi Sewerage Authority (see VPRS 14761). It comprises separate listing for Major File Headings and allocated Primary Numbers, as well as detailed listing of files referred to as a General File Index providing both secondary headings and relevant file numbers.

    It provides cross-reference to files registered under the previous alpha-numeric system.

    3. Copies of the subject index cards from the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission and seemingly incomplete printouts from the Rural Water Corporation database relating to Wonthaggi and Inverloch District files.

    * Note - For copy of the database, see VPRS 9616 Data Base for the Post 1995 Retieval of General Correspondence Files.
