Year - three possibilities but only one is correct (Boston Tax Records)
This project asks for a year and on most batches the year is clearly shown or it's clearly not there.
(In the following paragraphs, the "xx" in the abbreviation for assessed are actually "ss" but that word is not allowed to be posted.)
There are some batches that have a column labeled "Axx'd 1866 Page" (meaning Assessed 1866 Page) Almost all indexers insert "blank" for the batch year for this situation, which I think is correct since the Axx'd 1866 is referring to the prior year's assessment.
But some enter 1866 for the batch year which I think is clearly wrong.
But then, some will enter 1867 for the batch year which is technically correct but is not according to batch instructions which calls for the entering of a clearly shown year. The instructions do not mention calculating the year based on other information.
Hopefully this makes sense. I would appreciate your opinion as what to enter in the year field. (I say "blank" for the Axx'd 1866 Page batches.)
