Whether to Index Passenger Lists That Do Not Show Port of Arrival and Other Heading Information
Jill Bateman said: In Web Indexing Batch M9RN-94V, US Louisiana, New Orleans--Quarterly abstracts of vessels, 1820-1875, there was no heading on my batch or any of the six preceding or following batches to indicate a header of where the passengers had arrived. If Project Instructions could indicate how indexers are to treat such images, that would be helpful. Do indexers index batches such as this or return them marked No Extractable Data? Also, on my batch there was no heading that indicated that the numbers following the passenger names were ages. I indexed them anyway but know that in previous projects they were not supposed to be indexed. Thank you for your help.
