Are we to be indexing those individuals who are labelled as "Body of an Unknown adult" in the burial records where they have no spouse or parents?  I've seen it mentioned somewhere else that we are not to be indexing these because the individual can not be put into the database.  Yes / No?  Need confirmation.  Dont have a SB #.  April Robertson - Admin/Owner of Facebook Unofficial Share Batch Group 20:58, 30 March 2012 (UTC) 

I am indexing UK, Lancashire-Church of England, 1541-1910 [Part A]/004466953[989] This batch is marriage records. The records show 3 banns recorded, but then there are handwritten entries in the margin next to the banns that says for example "No 209 Married by me April 29, 1869 J. Stock"  The numbers don't match the record number. Should I index this as the marriage date? It's always the last day of the banns or a couple of days later. Please send us a share batch number.

I am indexing UK, Lancashire-Church of England, 1541-1910 [Part A]004484134{416},.  This batch is chirstening records.  There are two images.  The second image is the same as the first image.  Each image shows two pages with an identical label/copyright notice in the middle of the second page.  Do I index the names I can see above and below the copyright notice?  If so do they go with the first or second image? May we have a share batch number please?  Is a share batch number different than the regular batch number?  Where might it be located?  The regualr batch number is 416 as noted above.
