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: According to recent update by Ann Fechter, jurors are to be excluded. I am awaiting answers from support with regards to the other questions. --Paulmd199 23:28, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
