Hi everyone, I am working on project: US, Iowa—WWI Applications, 1923–1927 [Part A][MQ34-H13]. Image 1 is the 2nd page for 1 person and Image 2 is the 1st page for another person. Should I just index the partial information for each page?
I had several batches that were okay and then I had the same problem you describe. The first time I encountered it, the two images were for the same person. However, now I am finding that they are for two different people. I don't know what to do either. We could still mark the second pages, not extractable and get the other information by going to the icon to bring up images before and after our batches, but I don't know if that is the answer.
Thanks for sharing your batch code, @Christy Going
You would not index any information from Image 1. What you are going to do is mark that image as No, No Extractable Date in Step 1: Images. The previous indexer should have used it to collect the necessary data. To get back to Step 1, click on Step 2: Entries and it will allow you to click back to Step 1.
To complete the 2nd image, you will open your reference images by clicking on the bottom icon in the vertical toolbar on your image window. Now the screen is split and you will see that you can view the second page of Carl Young's application. You use that to index information you need to complete a record for Carl: The application county, state, and date of application.
Then you will submit that batch.

The information Melissa refers to is available under: Project Instructions, General Indexing Guidelines,
What to Do When Records Span 2 Images or to View Additional Images
An example of this two-page form is also available to view under: Project Instructions, What to Index: Form No. 1--For living veterans only (Page 1) and (Page 2).
Reviewing the project instructions and field helps will hopefully answer your basic questions for many projects.
