The following observations have been addressed. Click the Discussion tab at the top of this page to report new issues.Please reserve this page for Indexing Support responses.


Note - Please click the Additional Helps tab for presentations on how to index this project and resources for determining localities.


Marital Status Fields (New 12/2)- Do not use Mr or Mrs to determine marital status - Example

Wife's Surname - (New 12/2) Entries listed as Mary wife of John Smith - do not index Smith as Mary's surname

Indexing the records in the correct order - (New 12/1) Supplement to the Indexing Presentation

Dates - Do not assume that a change in the date from December to January also includes a change in the year. (In 1752, most of the British empire changed from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar. The adoption of the Gregorian calendar changed the beginning of the legal year from March 25 to Janury 1)
