Where is the date on the document? I see no date.
The person who indexed has a date in their index. There is no date on the document he indexed. Where did he get the date he put down?
Sometimes, when indexing, the date is in the name of the batch that is being indexed because the beginning of the total record collection has the date. I have found that myself while indexing. Is there a way to click on the total record? If you can, you could go to the beginning few pages of it and see if there is a date there, or at the beginning of the specific area you are looking at. I've seen both.0

@ElizabethWilliamsMatteson1 . Depending on the project, you might be allowed to look at adjacent (reference) images outside the batch for a date that applies to the batch. An example is.the Military Rolls and Rosters Project regarding the Military Date field, where your batch image is a continuation page of a roll or roster that began a few pages (images) earlier, where the date might be located. The Reference Images tool is the 4th vertical icon — looks like an open book, and shows several of the images that precede and follow your batch image(s).. Even when allowed to look outside the batch image(s), we’re supposed to stay within the scope of the reference images, and not try to find the film and search for a wider range of images.
Please share your Batch Code for accurate advice on your batch, or a similar batch when you get one. It is the combination of letters and numbers in brackets found at the end of the batch name - looks like [XXXX-XXX]. Even if you’re “between batches,” just provide the project name, and someone might be able to give general advice on this issue.2
