:I've encountered a book that this is different from all the other books so far
:::4th August, 1649; Contrasted With The
:::1st January, 1835.
On the left page is the 1650 version, and the right is the 1835 Version
It is Identical to the book found here:
My plan for these is two sections, Left with year 1650, right with 1835.
So far so good. Problem is not all pages are thus labeled, making an
interesting problem. The Book cover isn't labeled with a year either. Is
there a way to let your Processing people know about this reel, so the
years are faithfully recorded where they should go?
Since there's a near guarantee that since the arbitrators will have not
have seen this context they will undo my pretty sectioning. Leaving the
result less useful.

How to Key in Tenant Information

Hello. Please advise how I should key in Tenant information that states "Edward Smith formerly John Armstrong". It seems that Edward Smith is the current tenant and John Armstrong was the previous tenant. Do I key in two separate lines? Thank you.

A: Yes, that would be two separate lines. However, on the older records, you will rarely see tenants. It will usually be all proprietors. If there is a tenant, You will see one of several key phrases: "occupied by," "let to," "tenented by", "liferenter", "leased to." These will usually be in the fine print. --Paulmd199 16:05, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
