Instructions say to index the first page of the will, however normally the name appears on that page, but in some instances it is shown only in the signature at the bottom of the will which can be on the next page or another image.  If we stick to showing the page where the will begins the researcher can still scroll to the next page or image to read the entire will.  If as I understand the update it says index the page where the name appears, I think is misleading and confusing.  Now it is being arbitrated to show both?  The update needs more clarification.  Also if the "will" is being filed, this needs to clarified this is NED,  only the original will or codicil is indexed.  Thank you
