The instructions are very confusing as they refer only to Passenger Lists. However many of the pages are gazettes with names to be entered and the record examples do show  and highlight them . Keyers are however excluding these and marking such pages as cover pages. Can you clarify whether only passenger list names should be entered or are all names to be entered and change the instructions accordingly.
