What to Do When a Register Spans Two Images
- Some birth, marriage, and death registers span two images. Some of the parents' information was often recorded on the second image, with the information about the principal person on the first image.
- If an image does not include the name of a principal person, don't index it. The information will be indexed as part of the previous image. Mark the second image as a No Extractable Data Image.
- If information regarding the principal person or the event continues to the next image, index the entire record, including relevant information that continues to the next image. (View the next image while continuing to index information in the data entry fields for the current image.)
