Everyone should read all instructions when indexing! Use the ruler for convenience in typing lists!
Kathleen Moon Brown said: When Reviewing a batch of Enlisted and Officer Muster Rolls 1916-1939 (Part C), I found a batch that was Indexed in the wrong manner. The indexer had started on the left column with one name then skipped to the right column for a few names, then back to the left column. A reminder in a message or other communication might remind indexers of the correct order to type the names. I returned the problem batch noted to be re-indexed with the current records deleted. Also important is that indexers are taught to use the ruler.
