Series notes:
General correspondence of the Department. The earlier part of this series (LSD1/1/1 to 124) are in no particular chronological order. It would appear they were kept loose as two sequences in file number order, corresponding with the two registers (LSD2 and LSD4).

In about 1914, officers employed by the Department made an attempt to re-arrange the correspondence into broad subjects such as bridges, land grants, surveyors, roads, islands, esplanades, purchase, rent, general, schools, timber, tramways, towns, churches and glebes.

As a consequence a reference to LSD1 correspondence in the registers (LSD2 and LSD4) or indexes (LSD3 and LSD5) may not always guide you to the correct file. As a result Archives staff have annoted the registers indicating which volume in LSD1 now contains the file. Also, as a result of this re-arrangement some of the early volumes in LSD1 contain much later correspondence from the first decades of the 20th century.

The amount of correspondence for the period 1870 to 1887 is small. This is partly due to the Department removing records of applications under the Waste Lands Act 1870. These can now be found in series LSD84.

These records are part of the holdings of the Tasmanian Archives
