Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    1. Consult the Consignment Details for the volumes containing records for the desired time period.

    2. For Units 3 and 4 and for 1862, consult the available indexes for correspondence from specific persons or offices.

  • Function / Content
    The volumes in this series were used to register correspondence received by the National Schools Board. Details given are the number allocated to each piece of correspondence, the date upon which it was received, by whom it was addressed (given as the name or office of the writer), Number (being the writer's reference number), the date (of registration), subject, the date when answered and remarks. Numbers in this last column in latter volumes are those given replies in the Outwards Letter Books (see VPRS 878 Outwards Letter Books)

  • Recordkeeping System
    Registrations were given a progressive annual single number allocated chronologically by date of receipt. Units 3 and 4 have alphabetical indexes at the front arranged by name or office of the writer. For 1862, a separate Index to Inwards Registered Correspondence is available (see VPRS 4820 Index to Inwards Registered Correspondence).
