Series notes:
This is the first series of the main group of transmission registers in which the movement of papers from the Colonial Secretary's Office among the various branches of the colonial administration was controlled, and it corresponds with the latter part of CSO1 and with CSO5

in other words, with all correspondence from August 1834 up to the time that the registry was divided into three "branches". The arrangement of the information given is tabular, with columns for: file registration number


date of communication

from whom or whence


and to whom referred. The pages were ruled off daily, and the return of the papers is indicated by a vertical cancellation of the entry. These registers can be of considerable help in tracing the whereabouts of a particular file

These records are part of the holdings of the Tasmanian Archives
