    In c.1976 funding was provided for a National Estates Project which allowed the Public Record Office to undertake the microfilming of rate books of a number of municipalities. The project focused on records dated up to 1900. Included in that project were the records in this series.

    The two films in this series contain copies of the following hard copy series:

    VPRS 7959, Rate Books (Broadmeadows Road District and Shire), 1863to1900;

    VPRS 7963, Rate Books (Merriang Shire), 1871to1900;

    VPRS 8332, Rate Books [Records Not Transferred] (Donnybrook and Wallan Wallan Road District), 1863to1871.

    At the time the records were filmed they were in the custody of the City of Broadmeadows. Since that time the records which form part of VPRS 7959 and 7963 have been transferred into archival custody. VPRS 8332 has not, however, been transferred into archival custody.

    VA 2395 Broadmeadows (Road District 1857 to 1871; Shire 1871 to 1956; City 1956 to ct) is the joint controlling agency of the microfilm copy of the records with VA 683 Public Record Office.


    File Note

    Two sets of the film were transferred into archival custody. One set is the master set of microfilm, is stored in the microfilm repository and is not intended for search room use. The second set was transferred as the reference set specifically for use in the public search room. It is available in the Laverton Search Room.

    The master set of microfiche of this series has not been officially closed under S10. This will need to be undertaken as part of a general project to close master microfiche.
