Only had a look at one of these image sets so far. Only locations I could see there referred to
1 the residence of the named individual (as in David Thomas of Cerne Abbas Bricklayer). Should I key Cerne Abbas as a location?
2 a reference to the appearance of the named individual at the last sessions at e.g. Bridport. Should I key that as location?
Q: On one sheet I have a man listed twice consecutively, one noted as "No 1 for a Nusance" and the other as "No 2 for a Nusance". Should I list his name twice?.
Q: The first page of this set is a list of jurors. I marked this one as Order Books No Names as I think the jurors are court officials.I would like to know if this is correct before I submit the file.
Appreciate your answers. Thanks.
A: Jurors are members of the public called to a specific trial. I believe they should be keyed. I am awaiting answers from support with regards to the other questions. --Paulmd199 21:22, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
