Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    This series consists of alphabetically arranged subject index cards relating to correspondence held in VPRS 1163 Inward Correspondence Files.

    The cards provide the file number of the last date of correspondence entry and in some instances, also the file number for previous entries. The file number consists of the year the letter was received and its allotted registration number i.e. annual single file number 66/2460 - 66 is the year of registration; 2460 is the allotted registration number, both necessary for referring to the Registers of Inward and Outward Correspondence VPRS 10374, which becomes the next point of reference.

    The reliability of this index card system is however uncertain and researchers may have to refer directly to the above-mentioned registers. It also appears that the index is incomplete for the periods 1970 - 71. This may be due to the fact that registry was making a transition to a new system at the time.
