Scope and content

Colonial Office 752 contains registers of original correspondence for CO 616, Dominions (War of 1914-1918), Original Correspondence. Classification and registry procedures for CO 752 are the usual procedures and this class provides the most nearly complete chronological list available of the correspondence received in Britain from the dominion and colonial governments during the First World War. These registers indicate the registry date and number, the origin or name of the author, the actual date of the correspondence, the despatch numbers of the governors' correspondence, the number of duplicates prepared, the subject covered, the related papers received by the Colonial Office and the manner in which the correspondence was disposed. This material is available on microfilm reels B-4019 to B-4023. Although CO 752 may be used as a finding aid for CO 616, the researcher may find the indexes to individual volumes of CO 616 more useful in locating specific information than these contemporary registers. The following list provides the register volume numbers as well as the appropriate volumes of filed correspondence and the dates covered by CO 752: CO 752, vol. 1, 1914-1915, filed correspondence: CO 616, vols. 1-9; CO 752, vol. 2, 1914-1915, filed correspondence: CO 616, vols. 10-18; CO 752, vol. 3, 1915-1916, filed correspondence: CO 616, vols. 19-33; CO 752, vols. 4-5, 1915-1916, filed correspondence: CO 616, vols. 34-52; CO 752, vol. 6, 1916-1917, filed correspondence: CO 616, vols. 53-67; CO 752, vol. 7, 1917-1918, filed correspondence: CO 616, vols. 68-80; CO 752, vol. 8, 1919, filed correspondence: CO 616, vols. 81-82.
