Q: I'm seeing lots of typos in this project. For instance, some marriage years are 17901, 1799-1801, or 180? . I've been keying the first four digits of a date and keying as seen on the others. Not sure that is right. And some marriage bonds are a year or ten years after the marriage date. I've been keying as seen on those, too. And many names have transposed letters such as Simth for Smith. I key those as seen, of course. I guess this is more of a statement than a question!
