Passenger List surprise in Indexing Instructions sample
edited March 30, 2022 in Indexing
In the past I have run into passenger list records that assign the embarkation location/date for everyone list, whether they got on at the beginning of the ship's voyage or boarded along the way. I always thought this was an error that was made in haste. However, today, in my first attempt at indexing, I discovered the following Indexing instruction sample for an Australian passenger list 1891- that ignores the different embarkation points listed in the column to the left of the passenger name. Is this the correct way to think of a passenger and should we be indexing this way?
Whoops! The link keeps taking me to another page of instructions, so I'll have to copy and paste
