I need a date for the military muster roll. I need to go back more than the 5 previous pages, any idea how to do that?
Yes, but you shouldn’t do it. Just mark the Military Date fields Ctrl+B (<Blank>). If you can’t find one on the image or the available reference images (+/- 5). The Researchers can do that exploring beyond those boundaries. An Indexer is restricted to the limits of the batch image and its reference images.
Thank you, some of the names have when they were discharged from service should I use those and leave the others blank.
We are advised to use:
So if there is a date available yes it should be entered.
Yes, as Larry says and I indicated, if there is a military date of some sort for a soldier but not an enlistment date or muster roll or roster date, then you are in the 3rd category -"Any other applicable military date." And a discharge date is a valid military date. So you would use it. If NO military date is available, then you use the Ctrl+B to <Blank> the Military Date fields. But don't worry about the images outside your batch and reference images.
