UK, England, Middlesex—Parish Registers, 1539–1988 [Part B] [MSPC-KVZ]
I have just reviewed this batch of 150 names. They were indexed as Christening records, but going back over the prior batches I could not confirm that. I could only assume that the Indexer had prior experience with similar, but earlier batches showing that they were, in fact, Christening records.
Why is there not a general review of a total record set to ensure they will always be able to be indexed? This set, no doubt, because the name of the Parish and the type of record only appears on the front of the book. Surely there is something that can be done to get this basic information attached to all the individual batches taken from that book. Having served a mission in photographing records I am saddened to see considerable potential for these records to be lost because of the lack of access indexers often have to important information. This could also lead to indexers losing interest in the work.
Another aside interest in this batch was that every surname in this large batch, extending over several months, started with 'S'
