Project Instructions
This Collection contains a list of Quarterly Abstracts of Seamen's Protection Certificates. From these images we are keying Name, Birth City, Birth State, Age and Declaration Day, Month and Year.

Images that have names to be keyed should be marked as "Abstract." Some abstract images will not include the birth location. Images that contain the birth location but no names should be marked as "Page Two." When an image only contains a year, it should be marked as "Year Page" and the year should be keyed.

For abstract images, locations from the "Where Born or Naturalized" should be split out and keyed into the birth city and state fields. If a county name appears, leave the birth city field blank.

The "Age" will always be found in the column right of the "Name" column, even when there are no title headers.

The "Declaration Date" will be in the far left column typically named "Date." Sometimes the "Declaration Year" will be found in the header; if so key the year to all the records which it applies.

40908_293963-00043.jpg

Choose the "Page Two" form type when the image is the second page of the abstract, and contains the birth location. Nothing from this image will be keyed.

Cover page, Section header, etc.

We are not expecting for there to be any Cover page, Section header, etc. images.
Use the “Cover page, Section header, etc” type for images that don’t contain any data, but might be interesting to look at because they provide some type of context for the image set. For instance, historical notes, affidavits, and so forth.

Image with no data

File:Quart No Data Sample 1.JPG

Use the “Image with no data” type for images that don’t contain any data or any useful context that might be interesting for someone to look at. For instance, an image containing only the blank background or an image with a microfilm target on it.
