Information Sources


This series contains correspondence and documentation relating to the disbursement of money and property to inheritors and debtors for deceased persons in the Brisbane region who had named the Public Trustee as the executor of their wills. In addition there are files relating to cases where the responsibility of executing a given estate was determined to lie with a third party.

Direct action files are administrative successors to the earlier OSMM (Other Security and Money Matters) and Unclassified Letters files.
