Given name of bride
I am indexing US, Missouri—County Marriages, 1806–1969 [Part P][M9YR-2PK]https://www.familysearch.org/indexing/batch/0472d8bf-7829-46d9-8eab-2cf28c683313 .
I am having difficulty with the given name of the bride in entry 4. I am able to determine *Je*iah" but the middle part is beyond me. I appreciate any help I receive. Thank you in Advance.
If this is the bride of Edgar Pool, it looks like Jemimah Greer to me in the first instance and second instance about mother's consent has extra letters in name, so you could use:
Bride's Given Name: Jemimah Or [then put asterisks where you can't figure out the letters in the second instance of her name]
Note: Did you use reference images (before and after) to try to figure out the Reference Number at the top of the page?1
I am pretty sure it’s Jemimah Greer1
Agree - Jemimah Or Jemmimah0
Thank you for taking the time to respond to my question. I am aware of the ? and * characters when one or more of a word or name is unclear. It is always good to refresh information, however. I appreciate your input.
I am not able to to see the batch, some information may be difficult to read because of damage to a document or other factors. You can represent unreadable information in various ways, depending on how much information is unreadable.
- One character
- If you are unable to read 1 letter or number, use a question mark (?) to replace the unreadable letter or number.
- Example: H?ndley
- Multiple characters
- For consecutive unreadable letters or numbers, use an asterisk (*) to replace the unreadable group of letters or numbers.
- Example: Di*son
Hope this answer your question.1
Thank you 5 individuals who responded to my question. I appreciate you all and I am glad I asked for clarification. A good reminder to check the documents before and after for unclear numbers. I am grateful for the community of indexers that give such support.
