Australia, Victoria—Wills and Probate Records, 1880–1998 [Part A] Index both the Cover & First
Ok folks, next issue,
I have been reviewing Project Australia, Victoria—Wills and Probate Records, 1880–1998 [Part A] which has been sitting stagnant for ages.
I come across many batches like this one where there are many documents marked as NED and not indexed.
Australia, Victoria—Wills and Probate Records, 1880–1998 [Part A][M39B-G6H]
In this example I have marked what I would consider needs to be completed based on the project instructions
Will and probate documents often continue from one page to another and from one image to the next. Index only the will or probate cover page and the page of the probate or will on which the name of the deceased first appears. Any image that shows only additional pages of the same document should be marked in Step 1: Images as No, No Extractable Data.
(Bold italics are my emphasis)
So the cover is to be indexed
And the first page of the actual document is to be indexed using all pages to complete the information required
I will eventually return this batch for reindexing because I am getting tired of fixing them myself
This is clearly an issue with project instructions as there have been so many cases I have come across (and fixed) and the project has been stalled for so long
