Added to the Catalogue this Week

We probably won't be reporting every week as to the exact items added to the catalogue, but these three are interesting:

00709 Debenture Index Heyfield and District Co-operative Dairy Company Limited, 1955-1968. Gives names of people, number of shares, year and address. Contains many loose sheets of paper that appear to be uncollected Debenture Certificates from South Eastern Milk Products

00710 Letterbook, apparently from licensed surveyor Daniel Bateman Sellars, for 1908-1909 (not full, ends 14 July). Appears to be surveying around Wagga Wagga, Tumut, "Tummbarimba", Yarramgobilly, (p184, 223) NSW etc. Also appears used by L.S. Sellars. D.B. Sellars died suddenly at Maffra aged 70, in 1919, while carrying out a surveying commission. We do not currently know of any other connection to Maffra, so if anyone can assist with further information, it would be appreciated.

00711 Share Register of the Upper Maffra Co-operative Butter and Cheese Factory Company Limited, from 1920 to 1950. Includes affidavit in front for amalgamation 20 September 1950 with Maffra Co-operative Milk Products Company Limited.

These items are available for consultation at the Museum on the first Sunday of the month, or by appointment.
