Reviewing the above. There are many Banns, a few actual marriage dates. So my understanding is you index the latest Bann date, or if there was a marriage date (later in the page you are reviewing) you use that date. The difficulty is that there may be a marriage on a later page (but we do not do that). It seems that there would be a lot of duplicated work, and also this requires the Indexer or Reviewer to have to keep referring back and checking if they have had that couple before.
In general, Indexers & Reviewers should not have to keep checking back to see if they have had that couple before - the job of the indexer/reviewer is to enter the information shown on the record or make any needed correction to what the indexer has entered. The researcher will be able to see the complete record once it is published.0
Wow that is a lot of work to do for a review. I would probably send it back for reindexing.
If I were doing this batch, I would start with the first couple (Richard Bell & Ann White), then go through the entire image backwards and find either their marriage date or the last bann date. Then you can also record Ann's Surname as White Bell since these marriage records say "Ann White now Bell".
Then I would move on the the next couple Robert Foster & Jane Pattison and do the same.
I would also keep a scrap of paper nearby to record the names of the couples I have already created a record for. Then moving over the right side of the page, you can more easily identify those couples who need a record created. I would not use the reference images to find marriage dates. Yes, there will be a duplicate record in some cases of a bann and a marriage, but as Mary Ellen says, the researcher can figure out those details once they see the images.0
