Project Instructions
This collection contains the entire Testimonial Roll given to Lord Viscount Morpeth in 1841 when he left the position of Chief Secretary of Ireland.

The majority of the images contain the signatures on the testimonial roll. Because the pages are adhered together to form one long roll, individual documents are not contained in each image. To avoid missing any names, the images contain a margin of the previous and subsequent page on the roll. Only key the names from the primary page of the image. Images in the top and bottom margins will be found on other images.

When residnece infroamtion is available, key only townships, cities, and counties. Any address, business, or occupational information should not be keyed. The only exception is when the business appears as a name (not after a name). In this case, the business should be keyed as a given name.

Key the names in the order of the verticle columns, and not in horizontal order.

Testimonial Roll

MTR_000005.jpg

Choose the "Testimonial Roll" form if this part of the roll has a list of names. Only key the names that are on the full sheet, and not the names that are on the partial sheets at the top and bottom of the images. These partial sheets are used as margins and the names will appear on another images.

See Example

Given

Key the first name or initial and any middle names of the primary person to whom the record pertains using a dictionary if provided for assistance. If a name does not appear in the dictionary then key the name as seen. If the name of a business appears as the name (not after a name) then key the business as a person's given name.
See Example

Surname

Key the Surname using the dictionary provided for assistance. If the surname does not appear in the dictionary then key the surname as seen.
See Example

Suffix

See Example

Residence

Key any township, cities, or countries in the residence field if they appears after the individual's name. If more than one location appears, key all the locations, each seperated by a comma. For example, if "Allen Kidare Co." appears after an individual's name, key as "Allen, Kidare." Do NOT key any addresses, bussiness or occupational information that may appear after an individual's name.
See Example

Cover page, Section header, etc

File:Cover_Page_Testimonial_Roll_Example_1.JPG

Use the “Cover page, Section header, etc” type for images that don’t contain any data, but might be interesting to look at because they provide some type of context for the image set. For instance, historical notes, affidavits, and so forth.

Image with no data

Use the “Image with no data” type for images that don’t contain any data or any useful context that might be interesting for someone to look at. For instance, an image containing only the blank background or an image with a microfilm target on it.

There should be no Image with no data form types in this project.
