Determining First vs Last Names
I am doing some batches in this group United States—Enlisted and Officer Muster Rolls and Rosters, 1916–1939, and I have been having some troubling determining which name is the First name as opposed to the Last name. It would make sense for them to be in the same order across an entire document right? which is what I thought, but then one above the other the names, Derick Berihel, and Gardner William come up one. So any tips for determining such things would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
