Biography



Choose the "Biography" form type for all images that contain the rank, name and regiment of an individual or individuals in the header above a new biography. In some cases an image that should be captured as a "Biography" form type will contain a continuation of a biography from another image as well as a new one. When this occurs, key all relevant information for the biography continuing onto the image, even though the person's name may not be available. Then start a new record for the next biography that appears on the image.

In order to key all relevant information on the image, reading of the text will be required.
