Will starts on one page, but name does not appear until the next page
How are indexers to index a will that starts on one page, but the name does not appear until the next page? The instructions are quite clear that you are to index the name on the first page, but if the name does not appear until the second page, which image should have the name indexed?:

If the name does not appear on the first page of the will, and you don't want indexers to look at the next or subsequent pages to get the name, then you are going to have to change the instructions for the project. And there is enough confusion already.

Project administrators, I hope you are watching the US forum for comments about this project. It is a great project, but indexers and arbitraters aren't "getting it" to mark only the first page of a will, let alone telling indexers and arbitraters, well, but if the name is on the last page... and it isn't on the first page....

If I could figure out how to mark this page for helpfulness and would do a thumbs down.
