On this batch the instructions say to mark slaves as "No extractable data". This can not be done on this record. Even if it could be done, why should I? Valuable info will be lost.
Until the ratification of the 14th Amendment in 1868, black people, both free and slave, were not considered citizens. That could be a reason behind not indexing black people.
I do not believe that bullet 2 is referring to slaves on the mortality census records. I read it as slave schedules, a totally different kind of paper work that would be returned to be indexed at another time.
This is just my understanding of what the instructions mean and I could be wrong, I have been before.
Hope this helps🙂
I read that as schedules as well @LarryClark43. Individual slaves, like this batch has, should be indexed according to bullet #1.
it is impossible to make it No extractable data
I can mark it as NNED, but since this batch is not a slave schedule, as evident with Persons who Died during the Year ending 1st June 1860 and Name Every Person Who Died, it will not be marked as such and the individual slaves should be indexed.
