Wisconsin—Death Records, 1907–1932 - Need to clarify Instructions on Local Registrar Number
Field 1: State File Number: "Type the file number. It was usually a 4-digit number indicated in the upper right corner of the document and was sometimes referred to as a local registrar number, record number, or registered number."
Wisconsin Marriage Records, the instructions were clear: Do not mistake the "Registered Number" with the State File Number. Registered Number is NOT the State File Number.
Some batches I have reviewed, all the Registered Number on the record is "1". And per the instructions, it is indexed as "1". The field on the form does not represent a State File Number.
The instructions for Wisconsin Marriage and Death should be consistent as the records belong to the Wisconsin State Archives, Wisconsin Historical Society.
Should this Registered No field with a "1" be marked <blank> or indexed as "1"?
