Indexing US, Massachusetts - Boston Tax Records, 1822-1918, Part G
As a reviewer sometimes I find that the first indexer of the Boston Tax records has been able to determine the year of the record. This is because there is a column to the right side which says "****'d ___(year). Page. It then gives the page number of the records of the previous year. I believe that this tells us the year when the property was last assessed/ taxed. This way if it says "****'d 1868. Page" we can assume that the current record is of 1869. Do others agree this is a valid way to determine the year of the batch being indexed? Thank you for your suggestions. David Putnam Jr.
I am indexing US, Missouri, Various Counties, )bits 1880-1990. There are supposed to be 20 obits but only two are actually there. It won't let me submit batch as I am missing the other 18 obits. ????0
@youngblood, susan marie 1 I'm not sure how you ended up on this thread, but, on the obit projects you index every individual mentioned in the obituary. So, they have preset the number of entries to 20 to get you started. If you need more entries, you will add them. If you index every name on the image, mother, fathers, spouses, children, grandparents, pallbearers, ministers, priests, deacons, elders, etc., and still have unused entries then you delete those using the trash can, and select "all blank entries".
When you have a question, you should post it in the Q&A section called Indexing. (This is the Idea section.)0
@DavidPutnamJr1 The same applies to your question. There are moderators and others over at the Q&A section of this community who can answer questions or discuss things like this. Usually we would not assume a year. But, if you have a batch that you can share, I'm sure others will be happy to discuss this! Click on Q and A and then Indexing, and remember, you will need to have a batch in your queue that looks like the one you are discussing. Good luck!0
