QUESTION: Are we to key only the soldier's name? What about other family members that are on the cards?
- A: Do not key family members, only the soldiers name. - 20:02, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
QUESTION: If there is only an envelope then a photo for a soldier and the address is on the envelope and nowhere else, do we key the address from the envelope?
- A: I think if there is an andress on the envelope, it should be changed to a 'card' so that we can capture address. -- Wiedwoman 20:02, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

It would be really useful to be able to toggle back and forth between the images on this project. Since you are not using the envelopes to collect data, you skip by them only to discover that the card files aren't always as legible as the envelopes. I realize you "key as seen" but you could get much better name spellings, etc if you could return to the envelope image
