Until 1909, no distinction was made between those Foreign Office records created before 1782 and those created after that date. The earlier records were then designated State Papers Foreign, the remainder being classified as the Foreign Office Group. The Foreign Office records filmed under the Australian Joint Copying Project are all records created after 1782. The consist of material dealing with the Pacific area, and correspondence concerning British and other colonial policies and dependencies in the area.
