Q: On the Enlistment Roll, do you create a new section when the enlistment year changes on the same page?
- A: Yes create a new section for each year. -- Wiedwoman 18:24, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
Q: If the enlistment year keeps changing from 1864 to 1865 and then back to 1864 again on same page, can you simply go back to either the 1864 section or the 1865 section to add names without creating a third section?
- A: Yes you would only have 2 sections. -- Wiedwoman 22:19, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
