Project Instructions
This collection contains convict registers from Georgia prisons.

Register images that contain names should be classified as the "Convict Register" form type. A line number, name, and all other available information should be keyed into the appropriate fields. Register images that do not contain names should be classified as the "Next Image" form type. A line number and all other available information should be keyed into the appropriate fields. Information should not be keyed from the right or left hand page when it is not he full page you see.

A line number is being keyed to join records that span two images. Line numbers should be keyed for each record on the page, starting with 1 for the first line. Line numbers do not need to be keyed for lines that appear on the image but have no record. If a line was skipped because there was no record, then a number should also be skipped. See image samples on the wiki for examples.
