(Example added 9/11) What should I do when the will starts on one image but the name does not appear until a later image?  The name is indexed from the image where it appears. The goal is to get the researcher to the image that has the name on it. From there they can browse the will, no matter how many pages/images are involved. Example

Indexing Names - The purpose of the will index is to direct the researcher to the page of the actual will where the name first appears. They then can search the other documents that pertain to the individual.


What should I do when the will starts on one page, but the name does not appear until the next page on the same image -The name is indexed from the image where it appears. (It will generally indicate that this is a Last Will and Testament.)  Please note that we can carry information from one page of the image to another page on the same image, but we do not carry information from image to image. Do not use previous or next images to gather information for the current image.
