How should dates be keyed?
The date instructions say, "The marriage day can be found spelled out within the first three lines of the marriage record, following the word 'addi'. Key the day numerically."
On many images, this rule is not correct. The date within the first three lines of the record is typically the date on which the marriage was recorded in the civil registry. The actual date of the marriage is found farther down on the record, typically in the third paragraph, in which the year is repeated. (Look for the phrase "sono stati uniti in matrimonio" a couple of lines after the date.)
