This Batch has the Roster list And a list of Losses. Do we Index the losses? If so how do we do it?
Index losses just as you would any other names. Since none of the names on that Roster has an enlistment date given, you would use the date of the monthly roster (August 31, 1935) as the Military date for all of those names according to the instruction/priority list from the What to Remember About This Project, which is also found in the Field Helps for the Military Month, Day and Year fields - the purple question mark that you see when you click on a field. These show that the Roster date is right behind the enlistment date in priority, higher than a discharge date, and certainly than a regular transfer date (i.e., date of a non-discharge "loss").
It may not make complete sense to index a date later than the discharge date as a person's military date, but that's what the instructions say to do. The discharge date is not singled out for special treatment in the instructions, so I would follow the rules.
Here is that guidance:
FOOTNOTE: Speaking of losses/transfers, for completeness, I want to mention this instruction below on transfer records from the What To Remember section. It doesn't affect the priorities regarding what I wrote above.
@HelenMolton-Huling Since you are reviewing what an indexer has already done then you should just review the losses the same as you reviewed the rest of the roster. Please take a look at the records you have reviewed because I noticed a few you missed although it will remind you before you submit the batch.
Thank you for reviewing and helping to make these records ready to be published.
Thanks to both answers. The Quality Check, very useful.
The Quality Check will not remind an indexer or a reviewer if there were missed names on the image. The computer doesn't know that information is missing.
