Information Sources


This series comprises administration of will disbursements. Money and property disbursements are recorded that are made to inheritors and debtors for deceased persons in the Cairns region who had named the Public Trustee as the executor of their wills, In addition some files relate 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.
