Lookup Lists- Lookup lists are not comprehensive nor are they to be considered the complete and final authority for indexing the field. There may be omissions but the lists are not commonly updated.
Page Number - If there is a handwriten number, use it. (It may be in a location other than a corner of the page). If there is no handwritten number but only a stamped number use it. If there are two stamped numbers, use the higher number. If a page number was not recorded, press Ctrl+B to mark the field blank. (8/26) - Some of the images have 3 records down the page spanning both pages of the image. There often is no page number in the upper corners but there is a stamped number for each record. There is sometimes a handwritten number below it but it doesn't appear to coincide with any sequence as the stamped numbers do. Use the stamped number.
