Anna, I'm a bit confused about the main image sample for Cover Page on the wiki page. Why wouldn't we key it as a List form type?

Kate,
I have removed the example. I will do further exploration but am pretty sure it would be keyed.

The project instructions state: "Do not key names of Jurors, Judges, Witnesses, and Committee Members." Are lawyers included in this group or should we be keying their names as well?

And what about victims of crimes? Do we key them?

We are keying the names on the individuals "involved" - victims and accused.

I am working on a page written in Latin. Is there a sample of a document I can look at? Thanks

Laura,
I will look for one. If you post a screen shot of the image you are keying we could walk you through it.

My reply is coming up in my account name which is my youngest daughter- sorry for the confusion, I've attached the screen shot.

Thanks for your help.

I've been working on keying the pages and need to verify that the writing is Latin with many brevigraphs. I haven't done that much reading of these kinds of records and don't want to make mistakes. For instance he uses what looks like Johes as an abbreviation for Johannes, Johannis or John but the keying should be the abbreviation- correct? Basically I need help from someone who is familiar with this type of writing so I know I'm headed in the right direction.

Thanks
Laura
