unclear reference numbers
I am indexing the US, Missouri—County Marriages, 1806–1969 [Part P] [M9B9-P8G]. There are no examples of this type of record in your field help. The one I have does not have any indication on it that it is an index or not but after seeing a number of these I am assuming it is an index BUT is the reference number the page number in the top left and right hand corners on the page or is it the page number by each entry? My husband is doing reviewing on these and some indexers have put the page number at the top of the page as the reference number and others the page number following the entries.
Also, these have no individual marriage date but do have a handwritten date "1848-1865" on them. Do I put this range date in as the marriage date?
Wish there were better examples to help us in your batch instructions!
