Q: In keying image sample 1, "Somersett" is marked as "Departure City" but it is actually a county, and "Maryland" is marked as "Arrival City" but the field name is actually called "Arrival Place" (and Maryland is a state, not a city, anyway). Could these be corrected, please? --Katerimmer (talk) 13:02, 29 March 2016 (MDT)

A: Thank you for bringing thins to my attention. A new image will be uploaded soon. Seanbmc (talk) 19:42, 31 March 2016 (MDT)

Q: Verifying here...On images "Emigrants from England to America", the occupation listed after father name is the occupation of the father, and should not be keyed. Correct? --Rhmaynard (talk) 10:06, 30 March 2016 (MDT)

A: Occupation will not be keyed on those particular records, so yes. Seanbmc (talk) 19:30, 31 March 2016 (MDT)
