Extra Keying Helps

I've found on the attached example that there is a signature on the right side of the page. We should use the most complete name. -- Wiedwoman 23:31, 1 March 2012 (UTC)


Common Keying Errors Found by Reviewers

Key locations as seen e.g.: Lpool or L'pool. If apostrophes are shown they should be keyed. -- Wiedwoman 18:02, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Q: I have a set where it is obvious that the Crew's ages have been put in the Year of Birth column rather than the year. The voyage is 1891 and the Crew are 20 to early 30s, many marked First Voyage. Is it acceptable to put this information in the Age field, even though there isn't an Age column on the form? Otherwise, following the Key as Seen rule and expand to 4 digits, I would have to key as 1820 to 1830 - this would make the Crew all in their 60s and 70s!

A: Yes it would be ok to key the ages as if that is what the column was. -- Wiedwoman 18:06, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
