Description (Content/Function):

This is an extensive card index compiled over many years. The creator, Ernest Roy Pretyman, had a strong research interest in the origins of Tasmanian place names, and was a member of the Nomenclature Board, although this index was a private work and not undertaken for that body. It comprises entries derived from Nomenclature Board decisions gazetted in the Tasmanian Government Gazette and documents the early usage of place names in records such as the correspondence of the Lands and Surveys Department (series LSD1), early maps, the papers of Leslie Norman (series NS503) and in contemporary publications, Journals of the Land Commissioners, almanacs, gazetteers and newspapers.
