Feel free to add to or edit information in this discussion tab as necessary. Please take time to become familiar with the General Keying Standards and be sure to read all instructions on the main project page. (Please note that in case of a discrepancy, project level instructions always trump general keying standards.)

Extra Keying Helps

I have transribed part of a record (I think I am 99% accurate - if you disagree post your corrections) to help with reading the handwriting. The names we would key are in orange text.
