Foreign Office: Registers (Library Series) and Indexes of General Correspondence, Microfilm Copies
This series contains microform of registers and indexes of general correspondence. The registers provide a means of reference to papers for the years 1808 to 1890 contained in the volumes of general correspondence before 1906. The registers relating to the USA go back to 1793 and there is a register of correspondence relating to France for the period 1761 to 1768. The registers provide details of the correspondence of ambassadors, consuls and some individuals with the Foreign Office.
As well as general registers there are separate registers for particular subjects, such as Commercial, Diplomatic or Treaty. The indexes, which refer to subjects, places and persons, serve as a means of reference to the registers but not directly to the papers in the correspondence series.
The original records are in FO 802
