US, New York, Erie—Index to Land Records, Grantors, 1630–1975 [Part A] [MS1Y-V5G]
This batch is typed very neatly and the image is very legible. My question relates to the date of the record. It's recorded as "58." The indexer set the date as 1858. Unless this is a transcribed record, it's unlikely there is a typed image from the 1800s that's in this good a condition.
My first thought was to record the date as shown on the image "58" rather than trying to determine whether it's 1858 or 1958.
- If only a 2-digit number was recorded, you can sometimes determine the first 2 digits of the 4-digit year from other information, such as the project dates or other contextual information on the image. If you cannot determine the 4-digit year, index the 2-digit number.
It's OK. It's 1858.
