Event Day

Key the day from the event date as seen on the record.The event date will vary according to the record type and document. In register styled documents, the event date will likely be listed in its own column and there may be a different date for each individual entered in the register, or the date may need to be copied down and applied to multiple individuals in a row. In paragraph styled documents or documents where the whole page references a single individual or family the event date will most likely be the date the document was signed or written. This date may be given at the top of the entry or page, or at the very bottom of the page, possibly with the year written out in word form. Be sure to check both the top and bottom of the page when looking for the event date. If there is one date for the whole page, but there are multiple people listed on the page (for example, family members), key the event date for each person.
See Example

Event Month

Key the month in its three-letter abbreviation from the event date using the dictionary provided to assist you. If the month appears as a number, key as seen.The event date will vary according to the record type and document. In register styled documents, the event date will likely be listed in its own column and there may be a different date for each individual entered in the register, or the date may need to be copied down and applied to multiple individuals in a row. In paragraph styled documents or documents where the whole page references a single individual or family the event date will most likely be the date the document was signed or written. This date may be given at the top of the entry or page, or at the very bottom of the page, possibly with the year written out in word form. Be sure to check both the top and bottom of the page when looking for the event date. If there is one date for the whole page, but there are multiple people listed on the page (for example, family members), key the event date for each person.
See Example

Event Year

Key the year from the birth date as seen on the record. If the year is written, key it in numeric format.The event date will vary according to the record type and document.

Poor Law Union or Parish

Key the poor law union when given as seen using the dictionary provided for assistance. If not present, key the parish as seen with the dictionary provided for assistance. If no union or parish names are present, you may leave this field blank. Apply the union to every person on the page.If more than one poor law union or parish is given, key the one from which the record originated. For example, Order of Removal records usually start with "To the guardians of the poor of the parish of Saint Leonard, Shoreditch, in the metropolitan police district and county of London, and to the guardians of the poor of the {poor law union name} Union in the county of {county name} and to each and every of them."In this example, you would key "Shoreditch" as the union (because this is the union from which the order is originating) and ignore whatever is written in the space for the second union (because this is the union to which the person is being removed to). If the originating parish space is left blank, key the destination parish instead.On register styled documents, the union is often given in the header area of the form.  The only expected poor law union is Shoreditch but other poor law unions that might appear are:Hackney Poplar Bethnal Green Stepney
