Information Sources


Separate indexes to Miscellaneous Letterbooks and to Departmental Letterbooks were maintained until 1883, although these letters had been integrated into the General Letterbooks from 1877. From 1884, these indexes merged to form this series of Indexes to General Letterbooks. The series provide an index to letters sent by the Colonial Secretary's and Home Secretary's Offices until 1915. Besides indexing the General Letterbook series from 1884, this series also indexes the Letterbooks of Letters to the Agent-General for Queensland, London.

Entries include date of letter, addressee, subject of letter and page within letterbook.
