Q: The keying image samples show that if the image shows the county as Dorsett, Master Residence County should be keyed as Dorset. Can you please confirm that Master Residence County should be selected from the dropdown menu and not keyed as seen (or change the samples!), just to make things clear? --Katerimmer (talk) 07:07, 19 April 2016 (MDT)
- A: In the examples some state, "county aforesaid" - this should not be keyed as the county name. As seen on this example, http://goo.gl/mh5WHP, Dorset (which was listed earlier in the record) should be keyed. If another county is given for the Master that would be the county keyed.

Thanks, Anna, but that doesn't answer my question, which is, if the image gives the county name as Dorsett, should it be keyed as seen, or should we select Dorset from the dropdown menu? See image samples 3 and 5 (or 13 and 15?)for examples. --Katerimmer (talk) 05:04, 24 April 2016 (MDT)
