Order of date importance the same for every name?
Im indexing Officer and muster rolls and i know that the order of importance with dates:
- Enlistment date
- Muster roll or monthly roster date
- Any other applicable military date
But some rosters have the enlistment date for only some of the individuals, while others are just blank.
Am i doing right in putting the date at the top (the muster roll/monthly roster) in the entries for those with no enlistment date? I then put the enlistment date in for those who have it. Please let me know if this is ok, thank you :)
