Overlays assistance - reviewing Middlessex Parish Registers, 1539–1988 [Part B]
Marriage banns, Middlesex: there are many overlays within this register. I have not come across these before. The general guidelines says . . .
- If the overlay contains information about a record type being indexed in the project, create a separate record, and index the information in the corresponding fields. If it does not pertain to the record type being indexed in the project, then do not index any information from it.
- Do not try to index any information underneath the overlay that may be visible.
The page has 3 entries and the overlay one entry. Reading the second bullet point of the guildelines suggests that only the overlay should be indexed. When I look at the reference images there are entries on the page of the register that are only visible in 'my batch'. I think they should be indexed, otherwise they will not be added to the database.
