 I am getting pages with some names listed in the following manner... "Wellman's, Mrs. M., housebreaking and stealing.- Roy Cox..." or "Williams', Arthur, housebreaking and stealing.- Roy Cox..."  My question is this; can I assume that the names are actually Mrs. M. Wellman and Arthur Williams?  This would be assuming that the manner in which they are listed is actually showing their possession of the location (as in Mrs. M. Wellman's house)?  I hope this makes sense.

Why not change the instructions to state something along the lines of " Key all names except police, court personnel and officials mentioned within a crime/warrant article unless they are the one affected in the article"? And the Project Instructions to "This collection contains Police Gazette's in Victoria, Australia for the years 1861-1883. The reports consist of "articles" detailing crimes allegedly or definitely committed by individuals within the communities represented, as well as police appointments, missing persons, etc."
