These registers record correspondence received by the Surveyor General's Department and the subsequent Survey Office and Mapping and Surveying Department. The registers record letters relating to the functions of the Office including surveys of Crown land conducted by departmental and registered surveyors, including land reserved for public purposes, surveys required by government departments such as Main Roads or Railways, local governments and other non-government organisations, as well as for pastoral and agricultural leases. Letters also relate to other functions of the Office such as production of maps etc. The registers record the registered number of the letter and any previous or subsequent numbers, the sender's name (surveyor, department, organisation, shire etc), and the subject matter.
