Talk:World Archives Project: Subject Index to Correspondence and Case Files of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, 1903-1952
From Ancestry.com Wiki
We have found a 2-sided card type in the project that seems to contain detailed information about automobile accidents.
<We have yet to see if this card type extends to other types of reports>
We key the front side in one data record. Most fields apply well. The examples seen have a case number.
We are to blank (Ctrl-B) the Subject field.
For the Date fields, we use the date in the upper right corner of the card.
The back side should be entered as a Cover Page so it will be in the data base next to the front side to be seen by people searching.
<open question of what to do if some data is present on the back side, like a name or two. I suppose it doesn't hurt to then treat that as a card to key with whatever data is present. But there may be an argument against that, that there is not enough data to make it useful.>
- For my 2 cents, I would key the back side of the card if it had any fields to key. The ones with no information to key, could be marked as a cover page. -- Wiedwoman 18:18, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
