This series consists of a master card index to files administered by the Public Curator and subsequent Public Trust Office, Brisbane. Each card records the type of file, the name, and address of the client as well as other details relevant to the type of file. Some cards are marked "Action Completed" or "File Destroyed".
Files administered include will, intestacy, insanity or mental hygiene or health, special hospital, conveyancing, trust, charitable institutions, unimportant or unclassified letter, notice of intention, legal aid, company liquidation, unclaimed money, safe custody, bankruptcy, loan, enquiry etc. Some Branch Office (for example, Rockhampton, Townsville, Cairns and Mackay) files are also included.
Cards may be included for persons whose wills were superseded by later wills which were not administered by the Office.
From 1982-1998 the index is in microfiche format.
