Project Instruction
This collection is a compilation of those who attended Eton from 1791-1850. From these images we are keying name, election year, birth year and place, and death year and place when available.

Some names will include titles. If it is clear, do not key titles that were conferred upon a person after they attended the school. Otherwise, key any titles that are seen. For instructions on how to key titles, please review the wiki standard site [1]. The suffix field is only for names and titles. Do not key any academic designations, such as, but not limited to,"K.S.", "mi", "ma", "quintus", "M.A." or "D.D.".

Election years will typically appear at the beginning of a section or in the top corner of the page. However, some election years will appear next to the name in the "Year of Election" column. Because most images only contain names within the same election year, the election year will automatically populate with the first year keyed. If the election year changes, be sure to key the new year in the election year field.

Birth year and place, and death year and place should be keyed where available. Birth information will typically appear after the word "born" and death information will typically appear after the abbreviation "d." If a birth or death date can be reasonably calculated based on other information given, key the calculated year into the appropriate year field.
